Seti I and his son Rameses II making offerings to the Kings, Abydos

The Royal Annals Project

Ancient Egyptian Pharaonic rulership is a driving point of ancient Egyptian culture. His funerary religion became distributed throughout the two lands, and provided a binding guide by which all divine religions came forth. The Royal Annals Project seeks to reconstruct the most complete royal record of ancient Egyptian rulers from its earliest mythical and archaeological records. With this compendium of knowledge, the project can then work to understand how this unique system of ruling shaped ancient Egyptian culture. To support the Royal Annals Project, go to the Fundraising page or the Royal Annals Project research wish list on Amazon
