About This Site

Petzi Aux Pyramides
Welcome to the Akhet-Aten Home Page!

The Akhet-Aten Home Page is meant to be a resource for the study of the Amarna period of ancient Egyptian history, both on- and off-line, and especially to provide a central hub for Amarna resources on the web.



The goals

There are many fantastic sites devoted to this subject, and I feel I can make this a useful resource by linking freely to all those other sites. In that sense, this site is not self contained, but it's a jump-point to find out whatever it is you want to know. We have miscellaneous topics, including an introduction to the Amarna period and its primary characters, as well as an exhaustive, annotated link list to everything I've ever seen out there on the ever-growing web. We also have annotated references and a bookshop, to help you locate the books you need for more in-depth research. We have hints for students and teachers, we founded a discussion group on the topic, we keep up to date on upcoming events and news, and a lot more. I hope that what you can't find here, we can help you locate elsewhere. To navigate, use the menu at left, our site map or the table of contents on our welcome page. If you're having trouble finding something, use our glossary/index or search from the box at the bottom of the page.

The history

This site started several years ago when I was in high school, and I happened upon a text role-playing world called MicroMUSE which was devoted to educating kids of all ages about science. There, I learned to build text environments and in my high-school way, I built a re-creation of the city of Akhet-Aten. From there, I put up a small webpage with background information, which grew slowly into this monstrosity as time went by. Now, the webpage is by far the larger project.

The creator

Wow, "the creator" - it sounds so powerful. Well, I am, I run this webpage all by myself. I'm a pure math major. If you'd like to know about me, visit my homepage, katherinestange.com.
