Hi, I'm doing an assignment trying to prove Akhenaten manipulated the religion to further his own power, to put it simply.
The problem is, I can't find ANY historian from around his time that has talked about him. How am I meant to analyse and corroborate primary/secondary sources if there are none?
Does anyone know of anyone? Please!

Of course you can't find any historian from his age, it's impossible ;) Archaeologists know things about him from analysis of excavations, documents, art, DNA samples and so on - it's hard work, but we may find something interesting. If you still find this topic interesting, try to read some modern books about him.
