Links and Resources

Egyptology Reference Works

The BMCEA Egyptology Resource list:

This list serves as a useful starting point for anyone wishing to research Ancient Egypt! It is full of useful sources and some of the most important texts in the history of Egyptology.

Online Egyptological Bibliography:

The O.E.B. is an Oxford database of Egyptological journal publications and books. If you are researching a topic in Egyptology, this is one of the best places to find relevant publications!

Porter and Moss's Topographical Bibliography of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts, Statues, Reliefs and Paintings:

Porter and Moss is one of the most important reference works in the history of the discipline. Volumes I-VII systematically work through most sites in Egypt and Nubia, describing the architecture, ornamentation, and statuary in great detail, and provides references to publications of each aspect of the site. Volume VIII (still being digitized) describes statues and artifacts in museums around the world which lack any provenance.

Ancient Egyptian Literature Vol. I: The Old and Middle Kingdoms
Ancient Egyptian Literature Vol. II: The New Kingdom
Ancient Egyptian Literature Vol III: The Late Period

Miriam Lichtheim's work on Egyptian Literature is a set of essential texts from ancient Egypt, and they are widely regarded as good translations. If you are interested in Egyptian mythology, poetry, funerary texts, philosophy, or documents from daily life, these volumes are an excellent place to start.
