MicroMUSE Akhet-Aten:

A Virtual Re-Creation of the City

I (Kate Stange) discovered, during the summer of '95, an environment on the Net devoted to learning. While still a 'student' at the virtual community MicroMUSE (MUSE = "Multi-User Simulated Environment"), I met up with Javy Llora, a computer programmer from Brisbane, Australia. We've since become very good friends, and worked together to create an interactive text recreation of Akhet-Aten on the MUSE. It has an element of fun (you have the opportunity to explore while looking for clues to solve the mystery of the disappeared famous Statue of Nefertiti), and some good content with respect to the daily life of Egyptians (visit an Egyptian dwelling), as well as the history of the site and ancient Egypt in general (see the Book of the Dead and the Rosetta Stone in the library).   Javy did some expert programming, while I did most of the research.

While Akhet-Aten on MicroMUSE is not normally open to visitors, you may wish to experience the muse and after you have gotten aquainted with the environment, you may be able to take a tour.  The tutorial for new users is always available.  Javy and I (aka Nefertiti online) may be available online if you are lucky.   Now that you are intrigued, here's how to get connected to the MicroMUSE:

  1. Telnet to guest.musenet.org
  2. login: guest
  3. Wait for the MicroMUSE title page in ASCII text, and follow the instructions.
