The Study

Come in and brush up on your ancient Egyptian vocab.


VOCAB: with Bennu...one tweet at a time.

Every day Bennu used to tweet a single word in ancient Egyptian via the micro-blogging platform Twitter in the following format:

VOCAB: (MdC): Apd, (English): Bird, (Hieroglyphs): http://twitpic.com/1t27y


These daily vocab 'flash-tweets' were then bundled together at the end of each week and posted on this page as a weekly revision. Though VOCAB: with Bennu is no longer active the resources are left here for others who might be using Kamrin to learn.



The VOCAB: with Bennu materials are best used in conjunction with Janice Kamrin's "Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs - A Practical Guide", available in the Pyramid Texts Online Book Shop. Joining an online group such as GlyphStudy or AEL can also be very beneficial enabling you to learn as part of a group.
