The Problems associated with studying Egyptology!
Egyptology is a relatively new subject but it covers events which occurred thousands of years ago. Egyptology and Ancient Egyptian archaeology is in a state of constant transition, with much of the terminology and chronology in dispute and subject to change due to new technology, facts and information that becomes available.
A prime example of this is that in 1968 and 1978 x-ray examination of the Tutankhamun mummy lead to significant speculation that the young King Tut had been killed by a blow on his head.
By 2005 this changed when a further examination using a CT scan on the mummy revealed that the skull injury was likely to have been caused during the embalming process.
The problem is that no one knows for sure exactly what happened! Then there's the terminology, religion and the culture which is alien to Western Society.
Conflicting and incorrect information add to the problems when studying the subject of Egyptology. But problems aside, it is without doubt the most interesting and fascinating subject to study!
