Details about a dig at the northern Amarna era fortress of Tell el-Borg complete with Aten temple.

Looks like the Amarna kings guarded their country`s northeastern border just as well as the south border.

I wouldn`t be surprised if one day evidence came to light that soldiers patrolled the area around Tell-el-borg as they did in the Nubian desert around the Kurkur oasis.
There a stela was found containing the dispute of an official with a patrolman who had arrived late and was chastised for this. Apparently these duties were considered to be very important.
