Full Product Description

While their namesakes in the northern reaches of Scotland acquired distinction and honours as loyal and faithful servants of the Crown, the Youngs of the Borders gained a rather more dubious reputation as fierce and lawless reivers, or raiders.
But both sets of Youngs were always prepared to defend their nation’s freedom and independence when required, often at bloody cost to themselves in battle.
In more peaceful times, Thomas Young was not only one of the greatest physicists and physicians of his age, but a gifted Egyptologist who laid the foundations of modern-day Egyptology by breaking the mysterious code of the famous Rosetta Stone.
A black basalt slab uncovered by soldiers from Napoleon’s army at Rosetta (Rashid) in Egypt in 1799, the stone proved to hold the key to deciphering the mysterious Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Here is recounted the colourful tale of the Youngs.
