I have ..I hope finally found a legitimate Egyptian history discussion forum . .I have read Egyptian history since I was a child...I am no scholar in its history but at my age now I find my interest ever growing. I would like to learn to decipher rudementary Hieroglyphics and the laanguage of its age . . .I have ammassed a pretty good library at my disposal and would like to become welcome enough to ask questions that probably many here know but that I would be very thankful for answers anyway.
How wonderful I found this site..I hope I can learn more from those of you whom are very learned in Egypts ancient history

I have heard other people like to start with Collier and Manley's "How to read hieroglyphics".

Cool book, I have Manley and Collier's, I might look into Manley's though. Hey Anneke, I have noticed you have the avatar of a woman or goddess with the bird on her head, some sort of vulture I think. What is it? What does it mean, and why did they wear it?
