Egyptian Mysteries is the brain-child of Cathy Campbell, Egyptologist, Writer and Adjunct Lecturer. Egyptian Mysteries combines her passion for historical research and teaching with creative writing, energy healing and roleplaying games. The site brings all of these together in a unique offering of resources, products and services all related to Ancient Egypt.
Cathy lives with husband Joe, six psycho Bengal Cats and one adorable Mini Schnauzer, in their beach side house at tranquil Deception Bay, Brisbane, which is stuffed full of books and papers on ancient Egypt. Cathy’s personal library is well in excess of 1000 volumes and occupies its own room in the house.
Qualifications and Experience
Cathy holds a degree in librarianship as well as a teaching degree and three Masters Degrees, including one in Egyptology and she was an Adjunct Lecturer at Macquarie University in Sydney for twelve years. She also lead tours to Egypt for Academy Travel for six years. She is a published author of twelve books, a Reiki Master since 2000 and veteran role-playing gamer of twenty years.
A Unique Site with Unique Offerings
Features of the Egyptian Mysteries Site
The Egyptian Mysteries Site straddles the space between Academia and Esoteric Studies of Egyptology. It explores the unanswered questions in Ancient Egyptian History and Myth, the spaces where fiction can spin tales of heroism, magic and mystery.
It is offered up as a source of inspiration for writers and researchers who want to explore those unanswered questions and fill those gaps in the historical record with their own ideas and stories.
