7 Egyptology Blogs You Should Be Following


Are you interested in Ancient Egypt and looking for some quality blogs to read? Then look no further! Here are seven Egyptology blogs that get the Archaeology of Tomb Raider stamp of approval!

1) The Egyptiana Emporium - This blog is run by Gemma, an Egyptology graduate, and was one of the most popular blogs at the time of writing. The main focus of the blog is on Egyptological news, the examination of museum pieces, and the author’s own research but readers will enjoy her two regular features, the Tuesday Tomb, which looks at the discovery, study and art of royal tombs, and Hello Mummy, which looks at some of the famous faces of Ancient Egypt.

2) Collecting EgyptThis blog is run by Beverley Rogers, a PhD researcher at Swansea University, and focuses on the collection and display of Ancient Egyptian artefacts. Other key topics include museum studies, Egyptomania, Ancient Egyptian funerary customs, and the theft and trade of illicit antiquities.

3) EgyptiansThe blog is run by the art historian and restorer Timothy Reid and is perhaps the longest-running blog on this list. Timothy’s blog is largely devoted to Egyptology news and Egyptian art but one of the things that sets it apart from the other blogs on this list is its sizeable collection of book reviews. Perfect for the aspiring Egyptologist.

4) Ancient Egyptian Demonology Project’s Demon BlogThis blog is a little unusual but certainly useful to those who are interested in Egyptian religion and spiritual beliefs. The Ancient Egyptian Demonology Project is run by Dr Kasia Szpakowska, Rita Lucarelli and Panagiotis Kousoulis and is concerned with the systematic study of demonic entities (both malevolent and benevolent) in Ancient Egypt. The researchers’ main areas of interest are funerary and magical papyri, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, charms and figurines, and ritual paraphernalia (e.g. ivory magic wands).

5) Seshat’s JournalThis blog is run by Nickytoo, who is studying for a certificate in Egyptology via distance learning. It’s relatively new but you’ll find a selection of book reviews, links to useful resources, information about upcoming exhibitions, and accounts of museum visits on Nicky’s blog.

6) Egypt at the Manchester MuseumThis blog is run by Campbell Price, the Curator of Egypt and the Sudan at the Manchester Museum. The Manchester Museum is home to one of the largest collection of Egyptian artefacts in the United Kingdom and the blog provides updates on the museum’s activities, behind the scenes curatorial work, and research. Readers will love the object biographies, which provides in-depth information on the significance, production, and history of some of the objects in the museum’s collection.

7) Em HotepThis blog is run by Keith Payne, who also goes by the alias Shemsu Sesen. Keith is a writer and educator with a mission to make Egyptology accessible to budding scholars and the general public. The blog isn’t updated as regularly as it used to be but it still has a wealth of articles for you to peruse and you’ll find links to other useful Egyptological sites and resources in the side menu. Enjoy!
