This site is designed to be simple and let you access any part from any page you are browsing or reading. At any level or section you are, you can simply move your mouse to the navigation bar and follow the drop-down menus to reach any other section you want.
But you must note that to access deep levels pages you skip relevant information on previous levels. For example if you clicked from the navigation bar on Egypt Guide > Destinations > Upper Egypt > Luxor, you are likely to skip the regional map at the Upper Egypt level.

To achieve comprehensiveness in the site, anywhere you browse you may find links to other relevant section of the site. For example if you browsed a monument like Karnak Temple, you will find mentions of many Pharaohs who contributed to its construction. Links are made to take you to the Egypt History section which provides more historic information about those Pharaohs, if present. However, links are not repeated at the very same page. If there is more than one mention of one Pharaoh, you will find only his firstly mentioned name linked. Such links are normal underlined hypertext. Example:

The third pylon is built by Amenhotep III.

There exist other type of links. Some links may be placed to present explanation for an Egyptian terminology or expression that is part of Egyptology, Egyptian and Arab culture or any similar non-familiar word. After such words you will find an icon like this "" which takes you directly to the Egypt History > Glossary for further explanation of the term. Example:

The maristanWhat does it mean? was built to provide medical care for people from delicate surgery to the care for the insane.

The icon in the previous example will take you to Glossary page for further explanation to the word "maristan" and its origin.
Another type of links is provided by an icon like this "" which takes you directly to Egypt History > Pharaonic Gods & Goddesses section. The icon is placed after names of ancient Egyptian deities and takes you to another page with further explanation of this deity and how it was represented by drawing, if exists. Example:

The main attraction of Dendara is the temple dedicated to HathorWho is this deity?, goddess of love, music and dancing.

The icon in the previous example will take you to the Gods and Goddesses section for further explanation of Goddess Hathor and how she looks like.

We tried to be as concise as possible in dates whether BC or AD. AD dates are likely to be more accurate than BC ones. As ancient the history takes us, dates become uncertain, and for that reason we adopted the "Baines and Malek chronology" which deals with the ancient Egyptian history. This means you may find other dates in other places or sites that are different because they follow another chronology.
