Anyone here interested in Egyptology?


The subject fascinates me, and I really want to get into it, I just don't know how or where to start!


Can anybody help me out?

Ask at college? I don't know your age, but when you get to uni I'm pretty sure you can study it.

Buy some books on it, find some websites. Not that difficult. As a side note, I've been to Giza and seen the pyramids and the Sphinx. Cool, I know.

You might be better off with just History and Archaeological Studies, or something, until you get into Uni, where you should be able to specialise in it. Interesting subject, tbh, and if you're only just getting in to it, perhaps it would be best to buy some books, check out Wikipedia, etc.

Just be careful of all the beggars and thieves. My uncle went one year and while one of them distracted him with something another cut a whole in the bottom of his bag and ran off with his stuff

I've always been fascinated with Egyptian mythology. It's a great subject to get into as a hobby, but I don't think it's something career-worthy unless if you really really love it (and not just think you do).

Yea, excellent. There is just so much information on the web about Egyptian mythology. Just google that term and you'll have years of information to read, and it's all wonderful stuff. I love the creation story because it's one of the first literate cultures to show a creation myth based on their habitat.

I don't know about Ireland, but there are probably at least a couple of good Egyptian museums around in England. You should go visit those.
