When Characters Become Alive

Mr Mummific watching the Picture Box

Mr Mummific’s favorite pastime is the Picture Box.

Long before I actually got my Diploma in Egyptology, I doodled on my sketch pad and a little mummy figure appeared. A  cheeky little character for sure. And so Mr Mummific was born.

I had been playing with the idea of making an Egyptology website, but not overly academic. I wanted it to be meant for the normal people (well, not saying academic people are not normal, LOL :D). Easy articles about ancient Egyptian things.

I decided to write a few pages to see if I could manage it. But how to give the site a voice that was uniquely mine?

Well, to make the long story short – Mr Mummific took over. Very quickly I found myself writing down discussions with him, trying to figure out when he was pulling my leg, and when he was telling actual facts. He seems to have his tongue firmly in cheek. Which is why I ended up writing those fact pages too.

We are going through the Early Dynastic Pharaohs at the moment. While I am doing other things Mr Mummific explores our modern world. And has opinions about that as well…  http://www.ancientegypt101.com/

But in case you are interested in reading about the adventures of Mr Mummific (in ancient Egypt, in today’s world and in the Afterlife, which seems to be a much livelier place than I ever expected), check out http://www.ancientegypt101.com/
