AEGARON: Ancient Egyptian Architecture Online
Ancient Egyptian Architecture Online (Aegaron) provides vetted and standardized architectural drawings of a selection of ancient Egyptian buildings. These represent architecture from modest workmen's houses to temple complexes, dating from the Old Kingdom through Late Antiquity. Aegaron considers architectural drawings as historic sources: each plan is accompanied by a critical apparatus (drawing log), which contains background information. The plans can be downloaded freely forprivate and research purposes (terms of use). Please take a moment to learn about the various and scales as well as the different formats, that allow you to change them, e.g. by adding text or omitting selected details. We tell you how to best read the drawings, which standards we have developed for them and how you can extract measurements.
Aegaron is a cooperation between the German Archaeological Institute in Cairo (DAIK) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and is made possible by a combined grant from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the Endowment for the Humanities NEH). The American-Egyptian-German Aegaron-Team consists of Architects, Archaeologists, Building Archaeologists, Designers, Programmers, Librarians & more.
