Patrick Philpott has kindly summarised the Amarna updates the latest Journal of Egyptian Archaeology (in case you don't take it) pp. 1-31 "Tell El-Amarna 2010", Barry Kemp et al.....
1) Faience scarab inscribed with 'Neb-Maat-Re' ( = Amenhotep III, proving yet again the strong spiritual - probably not physical - presence of Akhenaten's father at the new city)
2) A mummy case with garbled inscriptions, further proof that those who wrote the texts did not always know what they were doing - a sobering thought
3) a nice stela with three very Amarnesque figures, text undecipherable
4) from the many burials studied, more evidence of malnutrition, work-related injuries and early deaths among the working classes: no, it was not Xanadu!
pp. 191-205, "New Light on the Amarna Period", Hoffmeier and Van Djik - excavations at Tell el-Borg in nortern Sinai -
- 1) evidence of strong military presence during the Amarna period
- 2) series of seals and scarabs from Queen Tiye through to Horemheb, including Tutankhamun, Ankhkheperure Mery-Waen-Re ( = probably Smenkhkare) and one of 'Neferneferuaten Akhet-en-Hys ( = useful to her husband), a title unearthed some time ago by Marc Gabolde, and proof, if proof were wanted, that this person was a woman.
