The books are in their place, as it should be, and each ritual takes place where it is supposed to.

The ancient Egyptians had a long and rich history of writing and literature. As early as the 3rd millennium BCE, they were using hieroglyphs to record their thoughts and experiences. Over time, they developed a sophisticated system of writing that allowed them to create a wide variety of texts, from religious and historical works to poetry and literature.

One of the most important aspects of ancient Egyptian culture was the Par Madja’at – the House of Books in the ancient Egyptian temple or palace. Par Madja’ats were not just places to store books, but also centers of learning and scholarship. They were home to a wide range of texts, including religious texts, historical records, and works of literature. Libraries were also important for the training of scribes, who were responsible for keeping records and writing documents.

At Kamat, the Par Madja’at contains the books and electronic documents used in our research to reconstruct ancient Egyptian culture.
