Updates Home

On this page you will find the most recent additions to this website, starting from its launch on 23 August 2006.

The last couple of years I have done a lot of research on shabtis parallels , leading to various publications and my first book: Psamtek, son of Mery Neith. The majority of these publications will be added to the website.
