Amarna, the city of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, is one of the most complete examples of an ancient Egyptian city. For almost four decades, Barry Kemp has overseen excavations at Amarna, including the study of material excavated from the city's houses and excavations at the main cemetery. In this lecture, Kemp demonstrates how recent work, including the study of human remains, has helped to bring about a better understanding of this important city and its residents.

Lectures are FREE and open to the public thanks to the generous support of Oriental Institute Members. Persons with disabilities who need an accommodation in order to participate in this event should contact the event sponsor for assistance.
