Try the Egyptian Scavenger Hunt

Chat with Katherine Griffis, a noted Egyptologist. She will be available to answer questions starting around 10:45. Here's how she introduces herself:

I began the study of Ancient Egypt when I was around 12 years old, when I checked out a copy of the "Tomb of Tutankhamen" (Howard Carter) from the "adult" side of the library where I lived....I have been hooked ever since...when in college, I began my study of the ancient hieroglyphics from the teaching of a brilliant Biblical scholar who knew at least 5 archaic languages, including cuneiform, Akkadian, Sanskrit, and ancient Hebrew, as well as Egyptian hieroglyphics...

Since the mid-1980's, I have served as a consultant in ancient Egyptian History and Culture to museums and educational institutions, and my work ranges from translating hieroglyphics for archaeological expeditions to authenticating artifacts of unkown origin that have been held by private collectors and recently given to either a museum or educational institution. (The oddest job I ever did was translate some words into hieroglyphics for the rock group, ZZ Top!!)

I have traveled pretty extensively in the Middle East, and speak Arabic, German, some Hebrew, (and presently working on Spanish). I am a member of the American Research Center in Egypt, one of a few professional organizations dedicated to the study of ancient, Islamic, and modern Egypt. My training is in Law and International Relations, and, as I had prepared for US Department of State work, I have extensive experience in cultural issues of many lands...and presently consult with companies, government, and other organizations in securing international business opportunities, either at home or abroad...

Write your name in hieroglyphics!

Ok, enough already! Let's play!
