Welcome to the

Amarna Trust

Promoting research at the ancient city of Tell el-Amarna, Egypt, and its conservation and protection.

About Amarna

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 survival of this unique heritage site.

Objectives of the Trust

The objects of the Amarna Trust are: To raise funds and to disperse them as grants for the furtherance of research, preservation and public outreach at the ancient Egyptian site of Tell el-Amarna.
