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.
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.
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.
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.
