I do see that pop up a fair bit. I keep meaning to have a look but I just can’t cope with more festivals right now! Wayyyyyy too many as it is
Oh yeah, the number of festivals that it contains is very extensive. I have a very select number that I celebrate, because as you say, there are already A LOT. It’s great though to have the calendar, and to have the seasons/ months available.
Just been reminded (due to an email) that https://www.academia.edu has loads of wonderful papers coming out all the time. Well worth a look.
This one looks interesting on the AE language:
I really don’t have time for another degree (already have a few degrees in mind should that time come!) but really MUST take a look at this. I’m going to give one of the taster’s a go first…
which I’ve linked elsewhere, are my two most frequently checked links for information on deities.
The first sounds familiar, not seen that second one before, so thanks for that! There are a few good sources on jackals, a guy called Terrence De’… is one of the best. I met him at an EES event some years ago. I can’t remember if I’ve put my book list up. If not I will dig his references. Thanks.
Ah I think we’ve met then. I remember going to an EES event where he was presenting a paper and saying hello to a Kemetic researcher working for him. That was a few years back now
Anyway welcome! Good to have another join us Feel free to post away.
Ah yes. That certainly would have been me. His talk on that occasion would have been: “ANUBIS AND SETH - a study in ambivalence” if that sounds familiar?
That does sound familiar. Yay! Hello again then
A few public resources from my Introduction course Oxford Uni that are quite handy, some of which I wasn’t aware of:
More to come!
A new one announced as starting up… Hopefully posts to follow soon…
I definitely second the Henadology blog; I feel like I’ve gotten a lot of helpful insights from that site. I’ve also seen some informative discussions on the ‘kemetic’ tag on Tumblr.
Here’s a blog I stumbled across a couple days ago—deeply appeals to my inner language nerd!
Something interesting which I’m sure all of us being serious about this won’t fall for
Ha, excellent! I love me some academic rigour (with a healthy side portion of snarking at the ‘ancient aliens’ crowd)
It is quite remarkable the number of people who do still hang on to the old stuff. I have to admit I have on occasion, though I try and keep as current as I humanly can but its hard work.
Don’t get me started on the ancient aliens lot. I’m on the verge of leaving a couple of FB groups because they seem to keep at it.
My pet peeve of the moment is the contingent of Kemetic-flavoured pagans who insist Egyptologists are some combination of wilfully and irretrievably stupid and/or a dark and sinister cabal whose sole purpose is to hide The Truth™ from us all. This cohort and the ancient aliens crew tend to have a lot of overlap, though.
They also tend to feel they have deeper knowledge than those that have spent their life looking at evidence. Hey ho. The world is full of varied souls
