The Tale of Sinhue

Omezzabo's (Orlando Mezzabotta's) website and here's the introduction.

Thanks very much to Rhio Barnhart for the above links. Rhio knows that I'm an absolute pushover for anything that uses web applications to help people delve into the worlds of archaeology and Egyptology.

If you're reading the Tale of Sinhue in hieroglyphs then look no further. Orlando Mezzabotta has provided a video of the tale written in hierglyphs and accompanied by transliterations, in five acts. I've played some of it in Windows Media Player and it works very well. At 43.3MB it does take a while to download. There's also an experimental audio version.

This is a very imaginative and useful online resource. A great idea.
