Recommend this event

Since systematic excavations began in the late 19th century, the site of Amarna has shaped our understanding of Egyptian urbanism, while eliciting fascination because of the unique nature of its founder king, Akhenaten.

This colloquium will feature papers on the following aspects of the city, based on new fieldwork and re-assessment of earlier research, objects and documents relating to the city.

  • Urban environment, layout and networks
  • Experiences of urban life
  • Belief, memory and identity
  • Production, supply and exchange
  • The changing city, and its afterlife

The colloquium is accompanied by the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Distinguished Lecture in Egyptology, by Barry Kemp on “The 'House of the Aten' at Amarna: whose needs did it serve and how?”
