PBP2013: K is for Kemetic Calendar

Here is a great post about Kemetic Calendars by Bastemhet:
Kemetic Calendar.

Another good post about Kemetic Calendars from Making Bright:
The Big Fancy Kemetic Calendar Post.

I’m working on a Festival Calendar for Aset/Isis specifically. I’m including Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) and Greek/Roman festivals for Her here.

Here are the sources I have used so far:

Temple Festival Calendars by Sherif El-Sabban

Ancient Egyptian Magic by Bob Brier (for the Cairo Calendar)

The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook by Tamara Siuda. And her Daybook, when it is out.
