Where to study Egyptology?

Many people are fascinated by Ancient Egypt. More than 6000 years ago, people settled in the Nile Valley to create one of the first states we know. For thousands of years, they have left us with unique architecture, literature, images, and objects filling uncountable books, documentaries, and stories.
The desire to decode the Ancient Egyptian Language represents the start of the scientific discourse within this civilization and the formation of Egyptological institutions.

What about you? Do you want to learn to read hieroglyphs? Excavate an undiscovered tomb?
