Based on more than three decades of research and excavation by Barry Kemp, this account provides new insight into Amarna and its people. The author brings to life the royal family and their offspring, including Tutankhamun, as well as prominent citizens such as the high priest Panehsy, the vizier Nakht, the general Ramose, and the sculptor Thutmose."@en
