I just found a documentry on You Tube about Amarna.

Although i have to admit it's only average but considering it's free to watch i thought people here might find them interesting.

Enjoy Very Happy

I Particularly found pt 3 the most interesting.

Especially the observation of the Aten rising in the Akhet with the accompanying tomb relief showing light washing over the whole city and the royal family was amazing to watch on video like that, as i didn't even know about this relief previously and am really excited!

Also found a nice video showing the recreation of the city with computer graphics!

It gives you such a clear perspective on how the temples and city was laid out and where the tombs where located after watching this program!

The way it demonstrates the lines of the boundary steala and how the temples where laid out in the same way so as to be a representation of the citys limits is incredible.

Enjoying the birds eye views showing how the boundary stealea lines match up and how the royal tombs located in the same place as where the sun is said to "take it's form" and be born.

Akhenaten was such a deep thinker to come up with all this and it's quite surreal to think a bronze age culture of 3,500 years ago could leave such an impression on someone from the year 2008 with all our knowledge and advanced electronic teachnology.

I have to say it's nice to beable to journey back in time to a place before the industrial revolution where everything is so natural and organic and people are connected on such an intimate level with nature through their deities. Egypt really is a culture unsurpassed by no other.

It's also great to see how AE was durng it's golden age, where it was already over one thousand years old, when rome was just a marsh and greece and empty rock. It's to the Egyptians credit that they where truely the most incredible peoples!

I just revel in the computer generated images of Amarna with sweeping temple and palace scenes shown in the last video!
