Ancient Egypt Online

Welcome to Ancient Egypt Online; a site dedicated to the culture, language, religion, and history of ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptians did not call their home "Egypt" (that name is based on the Greek pronunciation of the name of Ptah's temple in Memphis - "Hwt-ka-Ptah"), instead, they referred to it as Kemet (or Kem - the black land) or Ta Mery (the beautiful land).

 Those interested in ancient writings from Egypt can get a beginners guide to reading hieroglyphs with a tutorial from this site.
