Courses about egyptology

Hi! I've done a bit of scrolling through the subreddit and found some interesting resources, and I'm wondering if anyone knew of any online courses where one learns about egyptology? It doesn't need to be accredited, or free, just of relative depth and quality. I've heard about centre of excellence or coarsera, and I'd be interested if anyone had any reviews of those, or any other reccomendations. Thanks in advance!

Any substantial news about the exploration of the Southern shaft in the Queen's chamber in the Great Pyramid? It seems that since the stopping of the Djedi project in 2011, we have no news about this fascinating page of Egyptology.

ANY PIECE OF INFO ABOUT THE CONTINUATION OF THE EXPLORATION OF THE SOUTHERN SHAFT IN THE QUEEN'S CHAMBER SITUATED IN THE GREAT PYRAMID WILL BE HIGHLY WELCOMED.

The Exploration of the Queen chamber's Shafts in the Great Pyramid: A Short Summary

INTRODUCTORY NOTE:

Inside the Great Pyramid of Pharaoh Khufu there are four known shafts: two which exit the North and South walls of the so called "King's chamber" and another two which exit the Norh and South walls of the "Queen's chamber". The difference between these two pairs of shafts is significant: while the shafts from the King's chamber reach the surface of the pyramid, the shafts from the Queen's chamber DO NOT EXIT the pyramid. In other words, these shafts reach their terminal points somewhere INSIDE the Great Pyramid.

CHRONOLOGY:

1872: Wayman Dixon (1844-1930), a British engineer, and Dr. James Andrew Sandilands Grant (1840 – 1896), a physician deeply interested in Egyptology, discovered the Queen's chamber shafts which - untile then - where closed/sealed from inside.

1993: After he had planned and constructed a special robot named Upuaut-2 (based on the experience gained with the occasion of the previous construction of another two similar robots), the German engineer Rudolf Gatenbrink deployed the robot inside the South shaft. Here, one the most astonishing discoveries has been made: a small door (or stone) with two copper handles. But what was hiding behind that door? [Note: Upuaut-2 did not explore the Northen shaft due to a turn that prevented its advancement.]

2002: A new cable-controlled robot named Pyramid Robot explored both the Northern and Southern shafts. In the Souther shaft, the robot drilled a hole in the Gatenbrink's door through which he inserted a minuscule video camera. In a live tv programme transmitted by Nation Geographic an even more intriguing discovery was presented: at the end of an upward continuation of the Southern shaft another "door" (a block of yellow limestone) is blocking the passage. The best recording of this second "door" can be seen above. In the Norther shaft a door similar to the Gatenbrink's door from the Southern shaft has been discovered, too.

2011: Another robot, this time named Djedi (after the magician consulted by the Pharaoh Khufu), has been deployed inside the Souther shaft. With the help of a micron snake video camera some pictures of old hieroglyphs has been taken. Unfortunately, the convulsions of the Egyptian society has cause the halted of

Egyptology is ruined

I used to like Egyptology, but now it's ruined by a lot of unnecessary controversy. Everytime I find a interesting post about the Ancient Egyptian civilisation the comment section is ruined by a lot if delusional Afrocentristic hoteps who come with most hideous cherry picked false arguments about how the Egyptians were black and that she stop "white washing" them. Every argument they bring up is just some stupid irrelevant detail which they use for a very exaggerated false dilemma.

No, the noses aren't chopped of, the noses perished due erosion by the wind.

No, Tiye's bust is only dark because of the wood is oxidized, not to resemble a dark skin. Because there wasn't paint at all. Her mummie rather resembles a modern Egyptian than a black African woman.

No, they didn't portray themselves as black on their wall paintings, it's just a tanned skin compare how they portrayed themselves compared to Nubians who were obviously black.

And when I show those folks literal DNA samples of mummies which state that they weren't that different from modern Egyptians and that the Sub-Saharan admixture is higher nowadays do they just dismiss every evidence that I'm right do they just boldly claim that everything is false and that those actual scientists have an "eurocentric" agenda well I think that it makes more sense to say that they have an afrocentristic agenda. This shit is driving me insane.

[Egyptology] Was there a break in continuity between the times of Ancient Egypt and modern times?

I’m curious as to why people stopped using hieroglyphs, building massive tombs, and basically forgetting where everything was built. Why did the ancient culture disappear? Was there a time when Egypt was uninhabited for some reason? Why are there no Pharos now? Has anyone tried to trace the lineage of ancient Pharos to modern men/women? Why does it seem like there was a massive break in continuity between then and now?

Sorry, lots of questions. I’m genuinely curious. Thank you so much for any insight!

If you could recommend any books on this subject I would appreciate it!

With all the controversy about Egyptology, remember that Abraham got the astronomy and physics all wrong.

The sun does not borrow light from anywhere. The only communication between celestial bodies is via gravity. If the B of A is inspired by God, then God got it wrong.

Next year I will be choosing a university major, and I'm really torn between Egyptology and Ancient Near East studies. My main points of interest are language/linguistics, literature and mythology, which of the 2 majors would you recommend more in these aspects? And unfortunately no, you can't mix subjects, those are separate majors. In both of these you learn 3 languages, in Egyptology those are Classical Egyptian, New Kingdom Egyptian and Coptic, while in Ancient Near East those are Akkadian, Hittite and Sumerian.

Egyptology in the world of Horizon. (Spoilers)

I'm sure many of you have caught on to the more overt references to ancient Egpyt in the name of the machines; i.e Horus, Khopesh and made by a man named Faro (as in Pharaoh). But I feel they go beyond just being cool names in this world.

Now sadly I don't have some intricate breakdown of the lore and a series of enthralling links between the game and ancient Egyptian religion/culture but I have made some observations in my initial playthrough and my playthrough now. (Just before the proving)

References to Egypt appear regularly and can be subtle so I don't remember all of them. However the standout ones that come to mind are:

Ted Faro: An obvious reference to the the term "pharaoh" or a king of Egypt. It's a Greek word deriving from, well, "pr-Λ€3". That word became "parΚ•oΚ”" which the Greeks then turned to Pharaoh. This word did come to mean "king" late in Egyptian dynastic history. Before that the term largely referred to the royal palace.

He seems to be a confirmed Egyptophile like yours truly. He built a pyramid, evidently out west but I don't know that for sure. (In Egyptian mythology, the west was associated with death as that's where Ra, the sun, would set and thus die every night.) Now, the pyramid is obvious. The old dynasties of Egypt built magnificent pyramid monuments. However, they were built to facilitate one very important thing: The resurrection of the king. Not as a literal reanimated body, but to see that he lives in the next life. Their pyramid was home to their soul in the living world and where there body rested for eternity. Pyramids made in Egypt in/after late-5th dynasty are also the oldest source of religious text in the world and thus our best view of their world views in that time. It also detailed their journey into the next life. Ted Faro reportedly lived out his last days in his pyramid. If it is out west it would certainly be the best place to learn about him and his choices.

Elisabet Sobeck: Sobek was a hugely popular crocodile god throughout ancient Egyptian history who served purposes from a local patron deity, to a god of war, and holding such lofty titles as "he who eats his enemies" and "lord of semen". He was also for a time associated with Ra; thus being a god of creation and of the royal family. His most common roles pertained more to matters of copulation and male virility. Curious they would give this name to a character who embodies knowledge and femininity. Though she is a tough warrior, in line with Sobek's

British Egyptology scholar Sir E.A. Wallis Budge claimed Jesuit priest Athanasius Kircher fabricated his hieroglyphic translations in the book 'Oedipus Aegyptiacus'

Quotations come from Easy lessons in Egyptian hieroglyphics with sign list, E.A. Wallis Budge (1899) pg. 14/15 : https://archive.org/stream/EasyLessonsInEgyptianHieroglyphics#page/n25/mode/2up

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athanasius_Kircher

Diagram 'of the names of God' in Jesuit Kircher's Oedipus Aegyptiacus. The Occult iconography is equating the Jesuits to the creator of the Universe.

"It will be remembered that long before the close of the Roman rule in Egypt the hieroglyphic system of writing had fallen into disuse, and that its place had been taken by demotic, and by Coptic, that is to say, the Egyptian language written in Greek letters ; the widespread use of Greek and Latin among the governing and upper classes of Egypt also caused the disappearance of Egyptian as the language of state. The study of hieroglyphics was prosecuted by the priests in remote districts probably until the end of the Vth century of our era, but very little later the ancient inscriptions had become absolutely a dead letter, and until the beginning of the present century there was neither an Oriental nor a European who could either read or understand a hieroglyphic inscription. Many writers pretended to have found the key to the hieroglyphics, and many more professed, with a shameless impudence which it is hard to understand in these days, to translate the contents of the texts into a modern tongue. Foremost among such pretenders must be mentioned Athanasius Kircher who, in the XVIIth century, declared that he had found the key to the hieroglyphic inscriptions ; the translations which he prints in his Oedipus Aegyptiacus are utter nonsense, but as they were put forth in a learned tongue many people at the time believed they were correct. More than half a century later the Comte de Pahlin stated that an inscription at Denderah was only a translation of Psalm C., and some later writers believed that the Egyptian inscriptions contained Bible phrases and Hebrew compositions."

Do any Egyptology (language-focused) PhD programs not require the GRE?

Hoping to do a PhD in Egyptology, likely starting in 2021 or 2022. I am from a European system, but I prefer the US approach to the PhD. When I apply, I'll have a masters, 1 year of teaching experience in the US (as long as COVID doesn't hurt budgets), at least 3 published articles (have 3 now, hoping for more in the next year), and a year of working as a research intern, so I think I am in a relatively strong position. However, my maths skills are dire (I did get a top grade in it in high school, but it doesn't come naturally). I realise that they assess all parts of an application, but I really feel like the GRE would be my main barrier. Does every program need one?

Egyptology? Anthropology? Etc?

This may be a super dumb question but I thought I'd ask anyway.

I plan on majoring in an area related to egyptology, but I don't want to be confined to Egypt alone. I was wondering if there was an egyptology equivalent for other cultures? Is Egyptology just a more area focused form of Anthropology? And, if so, how much information do you learn when you take Anthropology that you do if you took Egyptology?

The works of Herodotus confirm that the Egyptian government is not clearing doorways in Egyptology, but sealing them.

This is a short excerpt from the works of Herodotus. In detailing the history of the three pyramids, one of them being the Great Pyramid, at Giza, he references the interrior construction of the pyramids. He informs his readers that the only entrance to the Great Pyramid is via a tunnel which once brought water from the Nile to the the Great Pyramid at Giza. The Great Pyramid has only one possibility of connecting to an underground tunnel: the Pit Shaft. The Pit Shaft is a shaft in the Great Pyramid at its lowest point, carved deep into the bedrock directly beneath the apex of the Great Pyramid. You can view the only four pictures of the shaft known to exist in the public domain here at r/ClearThePitShaft. This is the only shaft we know of which could possibly connect to an underground tunnel.

Conspiracy: the pictures reveal that the Egyptian government has filled in the Pit Shaft. This is the opposite of archaeology. Its not what scientists do. Its what grave robbers do. They are not opening doors, they are closing them.

Please help me clear the Pit Shaft.
