    Does anyone have any recommendations? :holmes:

    As a kid I was fascinated by Ancient Egypt (being something of a morbid child all of my interest was around mummification and the like) and I've found myself getting back into it again, but more as a whole this time (although I suppose the religion more than most things.) Not sure where to start books wise, though.

    Any other Egyptophiles in the house?

    If you are to look on the websites of Unis that offer Egyptology as a BA (Oxford, Liverpool, Birmingham, UCL etc) they might have useful first year reading lists somewhere. Or just google BA Egyptology reading lost.

    Get Wallis Budge's Egyptian Magic and From Fetish to God. Also get Jan Assman's Death and Salvation In Ancient Egypt.

    I also recommend Religion of the Ancient Egyptians, by A. Wiedemann. Egypt’s Legacy: The Archetypes of Western Civilisation, 3000 to 30 B.C. by Michael Rice. Ancient Egypt: A Social History by B. G. Trigger, B. J. Kemp, D. O’Connor and A. B. Lloyd.

    I have all these books. They are second-to-none.
Did you get less than your required grades and still get into university?
