The site includes a extended library of hieroglyphica (containing more than 4,700 signs) and downloadable hieroglyphic text processors for both PC and Macintosh.

Theban Mapping Project

The Theban Mapping Project documents the on-going dig at the Theban Necropolis. The Theban Necropolis lies south of Cairo on the West Bank of the Nile, across from the modern city of Luxor. Pobably the richest archaeological site on Earth, and one of the largest, it covers four square miles, and was the burial place of Egypt's New Kingdom pharaohs, noblemen, officials and priests.
Thousands of tombs were dug here, ranging from huge underground complexes in the Valley of Kings to less elaborate tombs in the Valley of the Queens. This well-designed site features a photo documentary of a balloon trip over the site, showing some of the most impressive monuments an structures.

The Virtual Mummy

Unwrapping a mummy by mouse click.
The computer has entered our everyday life and did not stop before the field of mummy research. Computerization not only helps scientists in examining mummies non-destructively, but it also makes it possible to create virtual mummies, a sample of which can be seen by the visitors of the exhibition "Das Geheimnis der Mumien - Ewiges Leben am Nil" and by yourself on screen (with reduced functionality). The object is a 2300-year-old mummy of a female, aged about 30 year.
