Archaeology of Egypt
Don your pith helmet and head for Egypt, where
you'll find hieroglyphics describing the first ever information superfeluccway

The Centre for
Computer-aided Egyptological Research (CCER) at Utrecht University in the
Netherlands specialises in issues related to the application of computers in
Egyptology. The Centre's activities concern developing general methods and
programs, with respect to computer modeling and information sharing. The site
includes a extended library of hieroglyphica (containing more than 4,700 signs)
and downloadable hieroglyphic text processors for both PC and Macintosh.
The Theban Mapping Project documents the on-going dig at
the Theban Necropolis. The Theban Necropolis lies south of Cairo on the West
Bank of the Nile, across from the modern city of Luxor. Pobably the richest
archaeological site on Earth, and one of the largest, it covers four square
miles, and was the burial place of Egypt's New Kingdom pharaohs, noblemen,
officials and priests.
Thousands of tombs were dug
here, ranging from huge underground complexes in the Valley of Kings to less
elaborate tombs in the Valley of the Queens. This well-designed site features a
photo documentary of a balloon trip over the site, showing some of the most
impressive monuments an structures.

latest information about the region and its archaeological discoveries. It's

Mark Ribly has put together a visual
feast of Egyptian images, and includes something that none of the other sites

beginner's chronology of Egyptian events ranging from 5000 BC up to 450 AD.
Unwrapping a mummy by mouse
The computer has entered our everyday life
and did not stop before the field of mummy research. Computerization not only
helps scientists in examining mummies non-destructively, but it also makes it
possible to create virtual mummies, a sample of which can be seen by the
visitors of the exhibition "Das Geheimnis der Mumien - Ewiges Leben am Nil" and
by yourself on screen (with reduced functionality). The object is a
2300-year-old mummy of a female, aged about 30 year.
