I have come accross some really good resources on the web.
I thought it might be fun to share them.

Nefertiti webland has a lot of original texts, and has a good overview of history. I have never found any mistakes.
http://nefertiti.iwebland.com/index.html


I love the site "Saqqara Online" maintained by Leiden University.
http://www.let.leidenuniv.nl/saqqara/homepage.htm
They have an overview of the tombs they have excavated at Saqqara. This includes the tomb of Horemheb, Maya and Meryt, and many more.
The site map is a nice place to start browsing
http://www.let.leidenuniv.nl/saqqara/Introduction/overview.htm

Waseda University has a wonderful website. The description of their excavataion of a 18th dynasty palace in Malqata is very nice.
http://www.waseda.jp/prj-egypt/index-E.html


If you want to look at an overview of any dynasty then this Polish site (English version) is wonderful.
Seems to be quite accurate
http://www.narmer.pl/indexen.htm


The Oriental Institute in Chicago also has a great collection of online resources
http://oi.uchicago.edu/OI/DEPT/RA/Research_Arch.html


This Spanish website has a lot of info about court officials from the 18th and early 19th dynasty. It's in Spanish. I use the Google translator to translate pieces that look promising. The translations are not that good, but you'll get the point of the written material.

The University of Memphis site is also worth looking at:
http://www.memphis.edu/egypt/main.html

I often look at touregypt as well. I have found some mistakes in articles and other information, but overall pretty good. Their overview of gods and goddesses is very nice. This is the general antiquities site

Yes, that's how I came across it. It's supposed to be one of the better Egyptology departments as well I think.

Should have mentioned that if you go to the Chicago site mentioned above, then ETANA has online versions of Breasted's "Ancient Records of Egypt". (PDF files)

Segereh, I tried going to the first link you provided but it isn't working(this may just be on my computer, I don't know...) Is there another link to that website?

I had the same problem.

It's the ancient egyptian language discussion list

Sorry about that one, forgot I was a member.
Probably due to that. Very very good site though.
Soon there'll be the full translation of "conversation of a man with his Ba".

You shouldn't leave out these:
http://www.thebanmappingproject.com/
about everything from the Valley of Kings.

http://www.virtual-egyptian-museum.org/
is very good as well.

If you want to read all about the mummies you can go to
http://anubis4_2000.tripod.com/mummypages1/introduction.htm
This is the Theban Royal Mummy Project by Max Miller

Quote:
The Theban Royal Mummy Project represents an attempt to bring archeological data about New Kingdom and Third Intermediate Period royal mummies from the Theban cache tombs together in an easy-to-access, systematic fashion. Royal and non-royal mummies from The Valley of the Kings also fall within the scope of this project.


Here's a short-cut to the mummy-locator

This looks like advertising to me.
You should know that this goes against the rules of this discussion board.
