The Ancient Egypt

On this place you find a home page intended to introduce the Ancient Egypt - in a slightly different way. We'd like to share what we know about it, a bit deeper than it is taught at the school, and through interesting stories and our private opinions. This site is permanently under construction, yet - due to lack of feedback - we felt that there is no good to continuously update the English version for nothing. If you find something interesting in our Hungarian pages what is missing from English parts, just drop a mail to get contact with us and we will give some references.

The site made by three - ESzAH and Meruira as a (would be) Egyptologist and HoremWeb, who is like a keen but rookie amateur, and doesn't protest against it :o) The magic of history of the Ancient Egypt means a lot for all of us. Even ESzAH's and HoremWeb's friendship has been started somewhere in the Egyptian desert. So we have our private experiences and impressions, and lots of the pictures you'll find here are selected from our own photos. Here is a sample for start: the picture has been taken in tomb of Mereruka (6th. dynasty), by HoremWeb. The top picture is a detail of an etching by David Roberts, about Dendarah.

Our site is tested for Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 and 5, Netscape Navigator 4.03 (or over) and Opera 3.60. Some browser specific notes are here. Minimum display settings are 800*600, 65k colours, but in this resolution a scrollbar may appear on the right hand side of Contents column, and it is disturbing. Recommended resolutions are 1024*768 and higher, with TrueColor. The site uses frames and JavaScript applets, Java-compatible browser recommended. We have extra menu page dedicated for browsers not supporting frames, but some of the features won't work on them.

The following page contains a complex frame structure, loading time may exceed the usual. Please wait patiently while loading.
