Ancient Egyptian Astronomy

Ancient Egyptian Astronomy
This site is a repository of information about astronomical documents from the pharaonic period of ancient Egypt.  In particular, the site aims to provide an up-to-date, accessible, and scholarly commentary to the astronomical texts and tables previously described in Neugebauer and Parker's three-volume work Egyptian Astronomical Texts published in the 1960s. The site currently only contains data on diagonal star tables, corresponding to the first volume.

info In order to view all the information on this site, you will need to have a transliteration font installed. You can download the font here.
