Many of the following links and resources were originally complied by The Bryn Mawr College Egyptology Association and re-posted here with permission. It’s an excellent set of Egyptological resources, categorized by type, for easy use by researchers, students, and curious people alike!
As education and outreach are two major tenants of our chapter’s mission, we are working on developing a set of teacher/educator aimed resources such as activities and lesson plans for primary and secondary education. Our goal is to have a set of material to launch by the start of the 2020-21 academic year, so check back soon!
Egyptology Reference Works
The O.E.B. is an Oxford database of Egyptological journal publications and books. If you are researching a topic in Egyptology, this is one of the best places to find relevant publications!
Porter and Moss is one of the most important reference works in the history of the discipline. Volumes I-VII systematically work through most sites in Egypt and Nubia, describing the architecture, ornamentation, and statuary in great detail, and provides references to publications of each aspect of the site. Volume VIII (still being digitized) describes statues and artifacts in museums around the world which lack any provenance.
Miriam Lichtheim’s work on Egyptian Literature is a set of essential texts from ancient Egypt, and they are widely regarded as good translations. If you are interested in Egyptian mythology, poetry, funerary texts, philosophy, or documents from daily life, these volumes are an excellent place to start.
