Product description


'More than any other study that I am aware of, Kemp's book succeeds in bringing to life the day-to-day workings of this ancient Egyptian capital ... A superb book, written and illustrated by a superb archaeologist and scholar of ancient Egypt' - Antiquity 'Well-written and clearly structured ... very well illustrated' - Egyptian Archaeology 'Professor Barry Kemp, perhaps the world's most experienced Egyptologist, has devoted over 30 years to Amarna's exploration and excavation. In this book he is able to offer unparalleled insights into the life and times of the citizens of ancient Egypt and of the exceptional man, the so-called 'heretic pharaoh', who ruled over them more than three millennia ago' - Colin Renfrew, University of Cambridge 'Kemp brilliantly combines history, archaeology, and art history to develop a complete picture of the onetime capital of ancient Egypt ... A beautiful and informative book, a rare find for experts and general readers alike' - Publishers Weekly
