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 Though VOCAB: with Bennu is no longer active the resources are left here for others who might be studying the Ancient Egyptian language.


The VOCAB: with Bennu materials are best used in conjunction with Janice Kamrin's "Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs - A Practical Guide".

Joining an online group such as GlyphStudy or AEL can also be very beneficial enabling you to learn as part of a group.
