About us

This site is provided as a free source of information on Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics, Hieratics and Ancient Egypt in general. We hope that by providing an easy to access source of information we can encourage more people to get interested in Ancient Egypt, and history more broadly.

In addition to our Hieroglyphics translators you will find lots of straightforward information which will help you get started with the study of this fascinating topic.

This site also provides simple educational materials for Children (which are also great for adults!)

This site is maintained by the Academic team at Volant Systems, a web and systems design company specializing in the education and higher education sectors. Our team is comprised of PhD academics specializing in history, among other disciplines. To this end, the books and resources we recommend on this site are thoroughly vetted.
