The reasons for creating this course are great interest in Ancient Egypt both among university students and the general public and also successful acceptance. The experience of the online Egyptology course offered on the Coursera platform, which was well received by both university and non-university students alike from both our own area and other parts of Spain and Latin America, has allowed us to see the potential of a course like this one.


During this course students will make use of documentation on Egyptian astronomy to gain a new perspective of different aspects of Egyptian culture. We offer a study of the concept of time and systems of time management used by the Ancient Egyptians, information about creational myths from the main cosmogonies of Ancient Egypt; the identification and interpretation of astronomical symbology in the Egyptian funerary and architectural contexts. We will also look at the sky through the eyes of the Ancient Egyptians, through their constellations and decans, the associated mythology and the task of observation of their horologists and astronomist priests; interpretation of the main archaeo-astronomical alignments; and an approach to how we can make calculations of absolute chronologies and better frame the relative Egyptian chronology using astronomical documentation.
