Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to stuff I get emailed about a lot

If you can't find an answer to your question here, try the Amarna Discussion Group, search the site, or email me.

Q. What proof is there that Smenkhare and Akhenaten were lovers?

A. I've read this in a few places. Here are a few online:

Some people think this because there is some confusion between Smenkhare and Nefertiti in inscriptions and reliefs. Another theory is that Smenkhare is Nefertiti.

Q. What got you interested in Amarna?

A. Well, thanks for your interest. It probably started with a childhood fascination with the gold and glitter of Tut's treasures. Then, at some point, I decided to build an Egyptian city online. The choice of city was somewhat arbitrary and probably due to my mom. This website grew out of that. But actually, I'm a pure math major. For more, see About this Site.

Q. I'm doing a research project on Amarna. Can you recommend some books or generally help me out?

A. Two places to look: My For Students page and my References page. Meanwhile there are other books listed in the Recommended Books.

Q. Can I reference your information? What are your references?

A. It usually isn't good to reference the internet in a research paper. See my References page, and my For Students page. But I should point out that my information is an accumulated understanding from a variety of reading, and most of the facts are generally accepted. Write me if you're curious about a particular one (except Smenkhare - see above).

Q. Can you give me a link in your site?

A. Sure, if it is about Amarna in particular, not just Egypt in general (there are way too many Ancient Egypt sites to even try to make a list). Email me.
