In the last decades, numerous digital approaches have been applied to ancient Egyptian materials. Archaeological items have long since benefited from the new digital technology methods and techniques. More recently, ancient Egyptian texts have been the object of said approaches, too, following the studies of other ancient languages such as Greek and Latin. Notwithstanding this, the particularities of the ancient Egyptian texts, not the last the complexity of its writing system, with its three scripts (hieroglyphic, hieratic and demotic) have forced the researchers to face different problems then look for other solutions. Digital work in the field has focused on collecting, managing and analysing ancient Egyptian texts. This Handbook of Digital Egyptology: Texts intends to be a showcase of this activity by presenting to the reader some of the most advanced technological approaches and projects nowadays covering the subfields of digital formatting and encoding, annotation, network analysis, lexicography, coptic and hieratic OCR, and hieroglyphic signs databases.
