Descriptions du produit

A companion to Abydos in the New Aspects of Antiquity series, this book a remarkable evocation of an ancient city brings together for the first time the history of the site of Tell el-Amarna from its foundation by the pharaoh Akhenaten in c . 1344 bc to its abandonment just 16 or 17 years later, a few years after his death. Nine chapters cover the king's choice of the site and its development, the layout of the city and its buildings, and puts it in the context of the society of the time. Over 260 illustrations, some 50 in colour, bring to life the remains and artefacts found at the site during its excavation. Barry Kemp, Emeritus Professor of Egyptology at Cambridge University, is a world-class scholar and writer and the acknowledged expert on Amarna and Akhenaten. This is certain to become the definitive work.

On ne pouvait en attendre moins de Barry Kemp! Voici la "bible" du site de Tell el Amarna: il faudrait 25 livres détaillés pour rassembler toute la documentation sur ce site emblématique. À lire évidemment par petites doses vu la foultitude d'informations. Bien illustré. A recommander aux égyptophiles évidemment...

Groundbreaking Archeological Writing 6 décembre 2012
Par William Suddaby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Barry Kemp's masterful account of his thirty some years excavating at Amarna is surely the definitive work for anyone piqued by the life of Egypt's heretic king, his new religion, and the city he built to glorify his revolutionary thoughts in a remote and previously uninhabited wasteland. The picture Professor Kemp draws of Akhenaten from his many years of living and thinking among the stark remains of the king's city may be the most accurate we will ever have. Years of feeling the same searing heat, watching the sun come up over the same barren hills, feeling the dry wind and gritty sand, seeing the same lovely water birds along the Nile, walking on the same paths, discovering bits of houses, palaces, and temples where Akhenaten and Nefertiti lived, died, and worshiped, these could only lead to a profound insight that is inaccessible to speculation and academic isolation.

As someone who, for sixty years, has devoured anything he could find concerning the Amarna period, this reviewer is quite enthralled by Professor Kemp's considerable accomplishment. I feel like I might now know the real Akhenaten, Nefertiti (and indeed Tutankhamen) somewhat better because the good Professor has so thoroughly shared his vast and unique life-experience at Amarna. The editors and designers at Thames & Hudson also deserve commendation, as the graphics and illustrations in the book are nothing less than splendid. If you love ancient Egypt, get this book; there is nothing quite like it, and you will not be disappointed.

Fascinating 23 novembre 2012
Par K. A. Sanders - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Dr Barry Kemp has been excavating the site of Amarna for over 35 years. This book shows the results of those years and much painstaking work, really giving a glimpse of life at this unique place. A fascinating look at an ancient Egyptian site, not so much a city as a collection of neighborhoods, interwoven with each other. This book is especially interesting for me personally, being a supporter of Dr Kemp and the Amarna Trust for many years, and also having visited the site of Amarna last year. Dr Kemp's insights into how the people of Amarna lived are very enlightening, and echoes of that way of life can be seen among Egyptians today.

This book is truly about Amarna itself, and only secondarily about what the site reveals about Akhenaten. I have heard some of this information before, in lectures by Dr Kemp. It is wonderful to have it all together, with more details and up to date conclusions. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the Amarna Period or life in ancient times. Dr Kemp is particularly good at breaking preconceptions and stereotypes based on modern lifestyles as to what is "normal" for a living space.

Good view of how archaeology informs history 22 janvier 2013
Par T. Randall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you are already somewhat familiar with ancient Egyptian history, this will be of great interest. It is written in a style that the layperson can easily understand and is accompanied by many photos and maps of the site. Because it concerns the city built by the infamous apostate, Akhenaten, and his reportedly beautiful and beloved wife, Nefertiti, nearly everyone's interest is piqued. It is not simply about the city that was built for the pharoah in a hitherto unpopulated area of Egypt; the author skillfully weaves the story of Akhenaten's reign and the history of that period of time into the narrative giving the city's description relevance and meaning. As mentioned in the title of this review, the book is a marvelous example of archaeology's role in constructing history as the author himself led the more recent excavations at Amarna.

The Best Book on Amarna by the Real Expert 30 janvier 2014
Par Stanley C. Sargent - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Barry Kemp is the archaeologist who is doing the actual digging, year-in and year-out, at Amarna, the site of Akhenaten & Nefertiti's alternate capital city. This volume unwaveringly focuses on the city and what we have learned from it. It is the only ancient Egyptian city that is not a city built on the ruins of many other cities, so we get a clear picture of what it was like. Kemp is the top expert on the subject and is not biased for or against Akhenaten, as are many other experts on the subject (e.g., Redford, who detests Akhenaten). Kemp writes well and in-depth, offers lots of sketches and photos, as well as some excellent color reconstructions of friezes and buildings. This is THE book on the ancient city of Akhetaten and will surely remain so for many years. GREAT BOOK!

Superlative! 8 août 2013
Par Larry N. Stout - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A beautifully written volume by THE authority on Amarna, most-completely known ancient Egyptian city, and Akhenaten's short-lived "heresy". Fascinating, detailed descriptions of the excavated ruins and artefacts, congenially interwoven with keen insights into the identities and roles of the ancient people and cogent inferences about the various conditions of their lives. As enjoyable to read as it is marvelously informative. The way archaeology should be written, gratifying for the Egypt enthusiast and the intelligent general reader alike. No nits to pick here! A great book!
