Egyptology on the Internet
dc.contributor.authorOdler, Martin
dc.description.abstractThe article follows an example of Wouter Claes and Ellen van Keer (2014) and provides an overview of the Egyptological sources available on the Internet, intended to serve interested Czech and Slovak audiences. Two main aims of the article are to provide a catalogue of the Internet sources and to discuss some problems connected to them. After a short history of the Internet and its diverse language versions, fundamental Egyptological resources are discussed, followed by web pages of the Egyptological institutes and museums, sources on the ancient Egyptian language and archaeology, Egyptological journals, social networks (i.e. predominantly Facebook, Academia. edu and Research Gate), videos, pseudoarchaeological sources, digital humanities, open data and Web 2.0 (crowdsourcing projects). The available data are mostly only of the first star of the five-star data deployment scheme as proposed by Tim Berners-Lee. Additionally, although a lot of data and databases are available online for free, the latest knowledge published in monographs and journals is only exceptionally reachable in open access. In this respect, the cataloguing of existing sources by specialists is very important, represented in the field e.g. by Egyptology Resources and Ancient World Online.en_US
