    Daily Ritual from Karnak

    The Daily Ritual for Amun in the temple in Karnak provides a great foundation for a daily offering format. The outline is directly pulled from this site: http://www.digitalegypt.ucl.ac.uk/re...dailycult.html . Digital Egypt is a source I can't recommend enough due to its invaluable information for free, and it put together as a teaching resource by the University of London.

    Re: Daily Ritual from Karnak

    I have been using Jim Loy's Egypt site recently. Although it doesn't cover ritual or religion, it is more about the language and hieroglyphs, He has a list of the Gods as well as an almost complete king list too. i have found this quite useful.

    Maybe we should set up a resource thread? I thought there was one already, but that may have been the previous incarnation of the forum.

    Kemetic Resources

    It was decided in another thread that some resource thread should be provided. This will be added to by all of us and hopefully we can all share This, of course, is by no means exhaustive and more info comes out with each dig.



    http://www.digitalegypt.ucl.ac.uk/
    An invaluable resource created by the University of London for educators


    http://papyri.info/
    A nice database for papyri

    http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/er/
    Another incredible resource

    http://www.touregypt.net/historicalessays/
    A treasure trove of essays that provide a foundation, but I caution against using it as a sole source because many of the articles are written by members of the House of Netjer. They're not bad people or even grossly misinformed, but there are biases to consider.

    Re: Kemetic Resources

    I have a couple of sites i found useful:


    Ancient Egypt Online - Very basic, but a decent amount of information to help point you in the right direction to look for more detail.


    Jim Loy's Pages - i found this one searching for heiroglyphic information rather than mythology. a good starting resource if you are learning to read Heiroglyphs and translate ancient texts for yourself.

    Re: Kemetic Resources

    The Ancient Egypt Online link should take you to the website, not a blackhole!


    Thanks to Caelia for pointing that out to me :-[
