About the SignWriter Project

The SignWriter Software was originally designed as a tool for my own personal use, to transcribe ancient Egyptian texts into a standard font. Since then it has been expanded to become the project detailed on this website. A set of Egyptology Software tools for the study of ancient Egyptian language that is free to use and accessible.


About Me

I have been interested in Ancient History since I was a child and ever since I've owned a PC I've been exploring methods of storing ancient texts digitally. My career has been in the fields of database programming, application development and technology.

I'm an Egyptology graduate from the University of Liverpool and I have been involved in numerous Egyptology and Museum based projects; creating exhibitions and documenting collections. I have recently studied Archaeology at the University of Oxford and also completed an MSc in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester.
