Welcome to the Ancient Egypt resource list. When you are using the internet don't rely on questionable sources (like wikipedia). Make sure the information you are getting is from an educated and reputable source. Here is a list of websites pre-approved by the writing teachers and the librarians. I hope you find this tool useful.

Your research report must contain paraphrased evidence and ideas from at least three sources. Two of these sources must be books; this means only one source may be a webpage. If you would like more information from the internet, you may use more than three sources.
