Mark Millmore's Ancient Egypt website
Whilst looking via Google for a website that turned out not to exist, I stumbled across the above, put together by Mark Millmore, which is very different from the usual Egyptological fare. There are all sorts of interesting sections, but the one that drew my attention is the Rebuilding Temples part of the site, where Mark has created computer simulations of what a number of temples would have looked like in the fully glory of their original colouring. There is also a nice Glyph E-Card application which allows you to write a name in hieroglyphs and email it. Finally, I really liked the section on Egyptian mathematics, with the numbering system explained and a set of problems set for different age groups.
There is a large commercial element to the site, with some of Mark's products for sale.
