Online Hieroglyph Study Support Group


 


NEW 2013 BEGINNER’S HIEROGLYPH STUDY SECTION

GlyphStudy, a yahoogroup student run study group, will be offering a Collier & Manley hieroglyph study section for Beginners starting JUNE 10,  2013.

TIMELINE
The CM2013 section will take about a year to complete.

TEXT
We will be using the 2003 reprint of Collier & Manley's How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs: A step-by-Step Guide to Teach Yourself, written by Mark Collier and Bill Manley, published by the British Museum Press.

EDITION
You may use any edition – although please note that there were a lot of errors in the original 1998 edition, so a more recent edition is preferable.

EXPECTATIONS
You will be expected to do all the exercises and submit most of them as homework.

NOT SURE?
If you are intrigued, but want more specifics, don’t apply to the lists yet, just send me an email and indicate that you are interested, but not sure, and I will get back to you with more information. Please ask any questions you might have.

AUDIT ONLY?

If you want to audit, send me an email saying so, and apply only to the main list

LISTS TO JOIN
If you are not already a member of GlyphStudy, where all the discussion takes place, you will need to apply for the main list. Then, all CM13 students will need to apply to a 2ND homework list in order to participate and send in work.
