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.
We should have an article on every Pharaoh & every nome in Ancient Egypt. Let's check to see if every important Egyptologist has an article. I'm sure the rest of us can think of other articles we should have.
To start with, most of the general history articles badly need attention. And I'm told that at least some of the dynasty articles need work. Any other candidates?
Standardize the Chronology.
A boring task, but the benefit of doing it is that you can set the dates !(e.g., why say Khufu lived 2589-2566? As long as you keep the length of his reign correct, or cite a respected source, you can date it 2590-2567 or 2585-2563)
Anyone? I consider this probably the most unimportant of tasks on Wikipedia, but if you believe it needs to be done . . .
This is a project I'd like to take on some day, & could be applied to more of Wikipedia than just Ancient Egypt. Take one of the standard authorities of history or culture -- Herotodus, the Elder Pliny, the writings of Breasted or Kenneth Kitchen, & see if you can't smoothly merge quotations or information into relevant articles. Probably a good exercise for someone who owns one of those impressive texts, yet can't get access to a research library.
I like this topic, and I plan to clean up the article. I've pushed down the old version under General Overview and I plan to write better versions on the various topics in their own sections, and then delete them from the general section. Eventually I'll cover everything in the general section and delete it. I'd be happy for any help. MickWest 23:55, 10 September 2005 (UTC)
How is the word pronounced? -Pgan002 05:46, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
All Egyptian pronunciation is assumed, there were no native speakers of Ancient Egyptian since the Rosetta Stone was discovered. But sunu (soo-noo) is what would be assumed. KV(Talk) 17:26, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
