Any plans to bring back the Tekh festival? That one might attract tourists.

I have just finished Dodson's latest book on Nefertiti. He is convinced that Tutankhamun is the son of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. He also believes that the mummy in KV55 is that of Akhenaten.

Forget History Channel or Discovery Channel. Garbage. Favorite documentaries now-a-days are Zoom lectures sponsored by ARCE and the like.

I see U of Manchester requires two letters of recommendation. For those of us that have not stepped on a college campus in many, many years, how did you satisfy this requirement?

Wasn't it early Dyn 18 that Amun became joined with Re as Amun-Re? Seeing as how Akhenaten chiseled away Amun more than any other god, I too am wondering how Re figures into this.

1. Because Akhenaten's beef was with Amun, not Re.

OK, but you agree the head is completely out of proportio ...
