For this week's "Website of the Week" I've chosen Ancient Egypt Online: a new website dedicated to the study of ancient Egypt created by Nicholas Wernick, a Ph.D student in Egyptology at the University of Liverpool. This site aims to be more comprehensive and user-friendly than the current selection of Egyptological websites, and even though it is still in the early stages of development, it is clear that over time it will become a useful study tool for students of Egyptology and general interest alike.
The different sections of the site are being written and designed by a small group of MA and Ph.D students from Liverpool, with the prior aim that the information supplied is as accurate and up-to-date as possible - this includes the current news stories that are regularly added to the news feed.
I must confess that I have a personal interest in the site; I have written some of the content and I have also supplied some of my own images of Egyptian sites. However, I do genuinely believe that the importance of the site as a tool for current Egyptological research will continue to develop as the different sections are added to over the coming months, and I would certainly recommend that you take a look.
