This article is within the scope of WikiProject Ancient Egypt, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of Egyptological subjects on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
Article requests: We should have an article on every pharaoh and every nome (law) in ancient Egypt. Let's check to see whether every important Egyptologist has an article. Surely, we can think of other articles that we should have.
Cleanup: To begin, most of the general-history, and at least some of the dynasty, articles badly need work. Are there any other candidates?
Expand: "Standardize the Chronology": This is a boring task, but the benefit of doing it is that you can set the dates! Why say Khufu lived between 2589 and 2566 BCE? As long as you keep the length of his reign correct, or cite a respected source, you can date it 2590-2567 BCE or 2585-2563 BCE.
Expand Ancient Egyptian philosophy
Infobox: Add an infobox or navbox to any article that doesn't have one yet.
Wikify: "Data sorting": Take one of the standard authorities of history or culture -- the writings of Herotodus, the Elder Pliny, J. H. Breasted, or Kenneth Kitchen -- and see whether you can smoothly merge quotations or information into relevant articles. This is probably a good exercise for someone who owns one of those impressive texts yet can't access a research library.
Is this the source of the phrase "Haven't you got a Nome to go to?" :) GWO
The list of nomes gives the capital of the 21st nome of Upper Egypt as Crocodilopolis, which is in the Fayyum, west of the Nile valley proper. The map shows the 21st nome as being entirely east of the Nile. What gives?
The same Egyptian name is listed for the 13th and the 20th nome of Upper Egypt, but the translations are different. The same applies to the 14th and the 21st nome. Are there someone out there who can correct this? --Klausok 06:19, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
