            Egyptology has always been a particular love of mine, dating back to when I was a very small child (I think I was five or six when I first contracted Egyptomania).  So, while it may be ‘popular,’ and possibly overdone, for my research paper, I would like to look into the developments in Egyptian archaeology in the last 10-20 years.

            So much of what I’ve ever heard about Egyptian archaeology is, well dated; all the ‘popular’ stuff was discovered a while ago. But people forget, that new stuff can still be learned about old stuff (isn’t that the whole point of archaeology?), and I for one would love to return to the new-old stuff.

            Which is all just a really long-winded way of saying, ‘I would like to write a research paper about recent developments in Egyptology.
