The UCLA Encyclopedia of Egyptology is an international cooperative project to provide high quality peer reviewed information on ancient Egypt. It is a resource in development and steadily growing collection of high quality articles, written in jargon-free language. Articles are written by the world’s leading Egyptologists and are all peer reviewed before being published. They provide in-depth information, relevant illustrations, and an overview of recent literature. When an article is updated, the older version will always remain available in the repository with the same stable URL. UEE articles can, therefore, be quoted as any other scholarly publication.
