generic emhotep tab BHi There!  Em Hotep, which has been inactive for a year (the website, at least), is in the process of coming back to life.  While this is going on, some strange happenings may occur, such as you getting notice that a post you submitted a year ago has finally been approved.  Sorry about that.  I am wading through literally thousands of spam messages (it seems the filter broke somewhere along the way) looking for the genuine comments.  If I miss any of you, my apologies in advance.  I am working on a more detailed post of what I have been up to (for the short answer, go here, as well as here) and what you can expect from Em Hotep as we return to the online Egyptological community.

Thanks for checking back in!
