The website, Digital Egypt for Universities (www.digitalegypt.ucl.ac.uk) is aimed at students, university staff, and anyone with an interest in Egypt’s history. The comprehensive site covers topics that include art, architecture, religion, and astronomy. Together with maps and a timeline, there is also a series of Virtual Reality reconstructions and maps, including some less well known places and monuments.
By offering internet access, the site will raise awareness of both Egyptology, and of the Petrie collection (www.petrie.ucl.ac.uk).
