Hi everyone! I hope it's okay that I'm just jumping in and asking for help in my first post.

I'm very interested in learning more about Egyptian mythology, history, their beliefs (creation, afterlife etc), their gods and the stories assosciated with them. If possible I'd like a book, or books, that explains all of these things along with some information on where these stories originated. Also, is there a particularly good translation of the book of the dead that is recommended?

Thank you in advance Smile I realise that a lot of this information is available online, but soon I'll be travelling for a year and so having some books to read would be ideal. If there are any extremely good websites to use though, please let me know!
