I enjoyed your educational site so much that my family & I have just returned from Giza. Your web site is good but the actual field location is superb. Thanks to all the info you make available we were able to recognise most of the features there and get caught up in the spirit of discovery. Congrats to all the team. Colin.

Dear Makers, First of all i would like to thank you for the huge quantity of information that i found in your site, information wich helped me to write my history college diploma. But now i find out a fact that dissapointed me, i graduated from History, Egyptian History, and i haven't the opportunity to work or to continue my studies because here in Romania the interest for Egyptology is so small and insigifiant. So, now i have to give up to the life and forget my passion... But thank you because you gave me the opportunity to find out more about my never forfilling dream. Ana

Building the Giza Plateau By Pyramids in that shape and order was fascinating. What makes it more fascinating is that we could deal with the project on their context. There is one piece of eocene block measures 9 by 6 meters - that could weigh 400 tons- in the pavement of the Khafre pyramid; how could they move it ? once by our capabilities , and the other by their ideas- once we know. I have another aspect of the way they were built; I published it 10 years ago when I was the Dean of the Institute of Environmental Studies in Cairo. I wish I can talk to Mr. Lehner - his E-Mail if possible- because we worked together in Bayt alRazzaz in Cairo 24 years ago. Thank you. Adel Yaseen Professor of architecture Ain Shams University.

Excellent photographic archive! The archaeological site photography from Egypt was just what I was looking for while doing my research. I also found the "Treasures from the ROYAL TOMBS of UR" unique and interesting. Thanks.

5/2/02, 1:00 AM:
The Egyptian culture seemed so much further advanced than their counterparts of the time. It may be that by expanding agrarian facilities and establishing parliamentary procedure to a semblance of government is what sets them apart. The engineering feats of the ancient landmarks are a testament to their ingenuity and resilience which can still be seen in their descendants to this day.

I have been wondering why nothing about the pyramids had been discribed or mentioned in the old-testament. Especially in the part of Moises I have read the bible so many times but I couldn't find anything about it. Is that because pyramids had not been built at that time?(in Moises generation) But I know it dosen't make sense for the historical counts. This is pretty myth-serious(mysterious)isn't it? I believe there must have been SOMETHING ALGO NANICA hidden in all human's history so that cirtain people can keep their initiative of all humanbeing and that makes a looooooot of MONEY!!! Well, next month I'm leaving for Mexico to check with those pyramids of the Maya.

Dear Sir, Madam, congratulations to your nice website! The old pictures of Mr Breasted are fascinating. During the last days I read his book on the history of Egypt. It is an quite good example for scientific writing without scaring not-historians! In 4 days we will go to Egypt for 3 weeks. We are very curious about it... Good luck for your further work!

I am a 35 year old, black South African, working and living in Johannesburg. I moved up the Johannesburg two months ago from Cape Town. I have always wanted to study Egyptology and to become an Egyptologist, but my family has never been in a financial situation to afford me such an opportunity. South Africa does not offer any Egyptology programs in any case. Now that I am financial stable and have a good job with the third largest bank in South Africa, I feel the time has come for me to start my studies in the field of Egyptology. I am very impressed with what I saw on two website on the internet regarding Egyptology at two of the leading institutions in the world. One is n the USA (Brown University) and the other in the UK (British Centre for Egyptian Studies). I also had a quick look through the courses they offer and the Professors in their faculty. If I will be studying Egyptology, one of these institutions is where I want to do it. I contacted both these Institutions and I was shocked at the cost of the modules the offer to distant learners. I will be prepared to cover some of the cost but I will surely be needing financial assistance considering the Rand (South African Currency) Dollar exchange. We are currently paying R11.67 per one dollar and R16.34 for one UK Sterling. The scholarship application would be for 500 pounds. My question for your Fund is ñ Do I as a South African qualify for a scholarship of financial assistance. Also what are the grounds on me applying for assistance. Please feel free to reply to this email address so that a healthy dialogue can be established. Many thanks Ben Sassman +2782 451 4328 (After Hours)

1)Try to edit indexes in an easier way so that they can be browsed with more ease: an alphabetical index (at least in the "archaeological sites" directory) could be useful, since lists are growing longer and less consultable.

2)the background might look cool, but is not of ANY help to the eyes of the students like me who are seeking information within your excellent,resourceful site

Dear classical groupies, Picaso went to see the cave paintings at Altimara in the Pyrennes. He came out visibly shaken and told all within earshot that we had learned nothing about perspective and colorization in 30,000 years. He also said he could not draw animal images that precisely. After his visitation ,he gave up and became a hustler of crap for rich idiots. If cro-magnon man reached the technological level of Altimara 30,000 years ago,why the heck are we not out on the rim of the Galaxy now? Is it just me,or has our civilization been going backwards for thousands of Years? Charles B. Tiffany

I am currently in rRockford visiting with relatives. I thought, as I have an interest in ancient Egyptian history and artifacts I would make it a point to visit the OI tomorrow. I know I will be very interested if what I see, as I presently only see stuff in magizines and books. Only one small item I would like to point out on your website is I seem to be having difficulty in finding the museum hours of operation. Don't know if its me or whether it isn't cleary find-able. I stumbled across the hours. Looks like 10am to 4pm. Hope correct. I don't want to miss anything you have to be seen. Sincerely, Richar Young

I find it amazing that the oriental institute of this universtiy has involved itself with middle eastern politics instead of just being a neutral educational institution. The body of water between Iran and arabian peninsula has always been called Persian Gulf since ancient times but your institute is bluntley referring to it as "The Gulf". The mistake of re-naming a famous geoghrafical world location of political reasons in unbecoming a university. So is taking side in political matters. I expect you to act responsibly and promplty correct your mistakes in your middle east maps.

Last Saturday night, after working for 8 hrs, and needing to wind down from the work, I watched a show on the pyramids. There was a "self-styled," archaeologists, who was trying to unearth the whereabouts of the Arc of the Covenant. I believe this show provided no relevant information whatsoever. It was based on poor science and speculation that followed no logical course. It is shame hollywood finds it necessary to reinvent this culture to satisfy our desire for christian dogma.

Anyone out there have any info on the so-called Dynasty 0 that is supposed to pre-date Dynasty 1. I think it might be the Scorpion King who I believe first unified Egypt only to have it revert back to warring nomarchs after his death. Any information on this would be greatly apreciated. Also any info on the new dig in the Valley of the Kings in the area adjoining the tomb of Tutankhamen, supposedly looking for Queen Nerertiti.

This is my first inquiry into this website. "Dead Sea Scrolls" have been of great interest to me. I wanted to know where Jesus "the Christ" spent his 15-18 yrs that are not recorded????? Did he travel to the orient,Alexandria,Egypt. India?? or did he spend those yrs with "The Essenes"???? or perhaps traveling with Hindus,Buddhist or Zen masters.??? He apparently did not share the same point of view with other JEWS. Why was he so Unique,different and others did not know him, ie,;{His fellow Jew Did he learn from others far,far away, in another land.?

Is there any Egyptian or Sumerian records of Earthquake activity of this nature about 7500 years ago? It seems that all our current tremor experts are disturbingly silent on all these recent shakers. It looks a little on the Biblical side to me. Charles B. Tiffany

Although many of your sites looked GREAT, I could not access them. I also had a lot of trouble reading the yellow print used on your site. Thanks for all the great resources!
