This is a hieroglyphs and Middle Egyptian course for those with basic-level prior knowledge whether recent or some time ago.  The course will consolidate and advance previous elementary study of the language with a combined focus on characters, grammar and short texts.  After a review of previous material studied we will read a selection of short extracts of funerary texts centered around the offering formula and additional tomb scenes, broadly covering the material in chapters 2-3 of Collier and Manley "How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs".  This is designed as a direct follow-on to 'Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs for Absolute Beginners' but others with a similar basic-level knowledge are welcome to join.

This course will be delivered online.
