Amarna: Capital City of Ancient Egypt

Amarna is the site of the New Kingdom capital Akhetaten (occupied c. 1350-1330 BCE) but has considerable remains from other periods, particularly the Roman period. It has been the subject of archaeological investigation since the late 19th century, with the current project beginning in 1977. This website aims to provide up-to-date information on Amarna and progress of the project for all with an interest in the site.
