If you also have an interest in military matters, as I do, then Dodson's books on battleships and the Imperial German Navy are a good read.

At the time of writing this comment I am about halfway th ...

I understand your perspective and disagree with the premise that seems to imply the ancient planners lacked time, resources or respect to build the king a 'proper' tomb.

The twelve hours of night are depicted as a rectangular grid. A solar baboon awaits at the gate of each hour to assist passage of the sun.

This informs observers that the caravan of five deiti ...

The jackal on the Anubis shrine was found wrapped in a linen shirt to inform an observer that the jackal represents the three gods Duamutef, Anubis and Wepwawep that have jackal forms.

The two statues are black to represent regeneration, not that they are, as you put it, "Fully in the duat". Neither statue has any place in the Duat anyway. The right hand statue, the one we ...

Being GRW to both could be the case, and I think I argued for that at one point. I think "Atenism" itself has created a block to understanding, as the position of God's wife of Amun had gone ...

Ikon, I read your reply. Your note that hieroglyphics identify the bearers appears to support the informative constructs.
