Hello, and good evening (at least in my tiny corner of the world it is Smile

My (screen)name is Toth, real name is less divine however: Richard; I am Dutch, and I live in The Netherlands.

I would be grateful if someone could point me towards a couple of non-fiction books about ancient Egypt and perhaps a separate one on the language (I know that isn't the easiest part of Egyptology, but I would like just to understand it a bit better than I do now.)

I love to discuss, chat, or PM

Hi Dachief,

wasn't that difficult and this admin (Kevin?) has everything under control and up and running; I like that, but I am not ready yet to abandon the other site, although this site seems to be much pharaoh-friendly (pun intended Wink )

Welcome to Egyptian Dreams, Susan
Well, Susan you could use he PM system, or set up a thread in one of te "General" area's if the subject is not - or only loosely - connected with Ancient Egypt, but be sure to read Kevin's (the admin of the forum) notes on what is acceptable and what not.) also keep in mind that it may take a while for someone to get back at you, we have people from all parts of the world here, I - for instance - am from Europe.

Queen-Seknofret, good to see and hear from you again (of course I am referring to your earlier post to Sobek101 and myself), a chat? Sounds like a nice plan, but in what form? Here in a thread in for instance the General or the Miscellaneous forums, a chat also could take place by PM, the choice is your's Smile

Hi Toth, I see your account has been suspended, maybe you still peruse the forum as a guest, on that note...
Some books you wanted to read, two non-fiction: The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt, by Ian Shaw
The Gods of Ancient Egypt by Barbara Watterson...
and a book on the language,
How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs By Mark Collier, Bill Manley...

The two non-fiction I mentioned are a good overview and reference of history, and the Gods and their stories. The Language book, the only one I could think of that I own is about how to read the hieroglyphs. It mentions grammar and basic construction. I am sure there are better books to learn about the language, not just a lesson in how to read it.
