The ancient Egyptian city of Amarna continues to transform our understanding of how human society has developed. Not only was it home to the heretic king Akhenaten, his wife Nefertiti and the young Tutankhamun, it remains one of the world’s pre-eminent archaeological sites for understanding how people lived in the pre-Classical world. However, Amarna is under immediate threat from urban and agricultural growth and we invite you to join our international community of supporters to ensure the long-term survive of this unique heritage site.
2017 marked 40 years of continuous archaeological work at Amarna. Visit our anniversary website celebrating this milestone.ANNIVERSARY WEBSITE
