Hallo
I'd like to know if anyone of you all can help me: is there a website where I can find all the findings or a catalogue of all the findings referred to XVIII dinasty (and particularly to Akhenaten)?!?

Thank you

Chiara :shock:

You mean by findings, discoveries of tombs etc.?

I once put together a list of the tombs from Amarna:
Amarna Tombs
I collected the materials from books like Murnane's text.

I also compiled a list of New Kingdom tombs at Saqqara:
Saqqara Tombs
You would really want to look at the first half of the page.


I also put together a list of the Theban tombs with links to internet sites:
Theban Tombs
They are in numerical order, but you can do a search on the name of the rulers.

I hope that helps a bit :D

Wow! Yours is a great work! And Thank you!

...But...I referred to a specific book that maybe, you know if it has been published...
It's the collection of all the photos made by W. Raymon Johnson during 1996-7 (when he vwere in Egypt for the Epigraphic Survey of the University of Chicago)... and that he made with the images he took of published and not published findings about king Amenhotep III and Akhenaten. I found the "news" about at page http://oi.uchicago.edu/OI/PROJ/EPI/NN_F ... Fal96.html
I think it would be interesting "seeing" all the findings about these two kings: it should be very important for our "theories" :wink: ...but especially for our culture.
Thank you

Chiara :shock:

No I don't know of any book like that, but I will look around for it.
You're absolutely right. That would be a great book to have.

Thanks for the wonderful link by the way :D I'm going to have to go back and read that when I have a little bit more time.

I did find this:
http://oi.uchicago.edu/OI/DEPT/PUB/CATALOG/OIP112.html

Reliefs and Inscriptions at Luxor Temple, Volume 1: The Festival Procession of Opet in the Colonnade Hall.

The Epigraphic Survey.
Quote:
This latest in the series of publications of the field work of the Epigraphic Survey is certainly the crowning achievement of the seventy years the Oriental Institute's artists and epigraphers have labored at the walls of the temples and tombs of Luxor, recording the inscriptions and reliefs in facsimile for posterity. Not only is The Festival Procession of Opet the Survey's largest volume to date, it is also the most sophisticated in terms of the finesse of the rendering of the facsimile drawings with indications of the different types of man-made and environmental damage suffered by the complicated surviving Luxor Temple Colonnade Hall reliefs indicated in minute details - which must have taken countless hours of inking by the many Survey artists (eighteen by actual count) who worked six months in the field each year recording the Opet Festival reliefs from 1974 to 1992.

These marvelous large drawings (each a work of art in its own right), along with the accompanying text volume (with list of plates, preface, transliterations and translations of the texts, commentary, and glossary) make the (cost) of this achievement fully justified. Any serious student of the end of the Eighteenth Dynasty who orders [this volume] sight unseen will not be disappointed when it arrives. [From a book brief in KMT 5:4 (1994/95) 86].


* ISBN 0-918986-94-X (large portfolio)
* Published 1994
* 14.5 x 18.5 in / 37 x 47 cm
* Pp. xxvi + 60 in booklet
* 128 plates
* $350.00

It's not the one I referred to...because of the year of publication: 1994 but I thikn it should have been published during 1998 or 1997...or 1999...or not already been published :(
But I think also that this book you talk about could be very interesting...

Thank you

There's also a Part II. Equally expensive :shock:

They are the only two works of the epigraphic survey that seem to come close to what you were asking.

Do you have Murnane's book "Texts from Amarna Period"?
Paperback: 310 pages
Publisher: Scholars Press (1995)
Language: English
ISBN: 1555409660

It has many texts from the Amarna Period and describes for instance the tombs from the Amarna period. It's one of my favorite books and really covers quite a bit of material from that time period.
And it's affordable. Should run between 20 and 25 euros I think.
