Seshat

 

SeshatSeshat was the ancient Egyptian goddess of wisdom, knowledge and writing.

Her name means she who is the scribe.

Seshat is credited with inventing writing.

Seshat was also the goddess of architecture, building, mathematics and surveying.

Her skills were necessary for surveying the land after the annual flooding, in order to re-establish boundary lines.

The knowledge of mathematics was considered quite sacred and was not shared beyond the ranks of the highest professionals.

Unlike Seshat, WB Wells is glad to share our knowledge of surveying with you.
