THE EEF GUIDE TO INTERNET RESOURCES
FOR ANCIENT EGYPTIAN TEXTS

version 21 (30 September 2013)

The below collection of online resources (plus some recent paper bibliography) for
ancient Egyptan texts has been collected by Michael Tilgner for the Egyptologists'
Electronic Forum (EEF). It is arranged chronologically and its items appeared individually
in EEFNEWS.
It might be (hyperlink) indexed at a later date.
For abbreviations used, see URL (common abbreviations, e.g., PT, p[], FIP, etc)
and URL (bibliographic abbreviations, e.g., Urk, Lichtheim, LD, KRI, etc).
The collections has been made over several years, so quite a few links may have gone
broken in time; next to each entry you may find the date (d/m/y) on which the links in
that entry have been checked last.
Corrections and additions are welcome with the editor.
