Kemetic Calendar

with 28 comments

This post I intend to be a gigantic compendium of all the research I’ve done on the ancient Kemetic calendar.  By reading this one should be able to create their own calendar with accurate festival dates for their area, or configure a fixed, ideal calendar that will line up with our current Julian calendar. (note as of July 31: this is by no means complete information.  What I’m doing as of now is using the HoN calendar [which is a hybrid calendar and not the same as an ancient calendar] and one can calculate wep renpet in part III- this is convenient because they also calculate with leap year in mind, unfortunately it’s only available to members.  You can also use Kerry Wisner’s calendar for the same purpose.)

Table of Contents:

I. Special problems of the Kemetic calendar

II. Fixed ideal or unfixed traditional?

III. How to create your own traditional calendar with the wandering year

IV. How to create an ideal, fixed calendar

V. Festival dates and other helpful information
