Kom el-Nana Reports

The expedition began a rescue excavation at Kom el-Nana in the spring of 1988 which was continued for several more years. For the 1989 and 1990 seasons the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research of the University of Cambridge offered fieldwork grants for the project and they were used to cover the costs of the excavation of certain parts of the site where the buildings seemed to have been constructed as places for ceremonies for the royal occupant(s) — the site as a whole seems to have been set aside for Queen Nefertiti — and for the cult of the sun. To these parts we gave the names Central Platform, North Shrine, South Shrine, South House (later changed to South Pavilion) and South Pylon. At the end of each of the two seasons a detailed report was prepared for internal circulation.

Having been prepared for internal circulation only (and in a word-processing system that is no longer available) they lack a final editing stage.

 

 

Amarna Reports

The series of six volumes, entitled Amarna Reports, were published by the Egypt Exploration Society between 1984 and 1995 and have been out of print for some time. They are here made available in pdf form, with the agreement of the Egypt Exploration Society.

The volumes are available at two standards of compression and page resolution. The smaller and lower version is intended for browsing and the text can be searched. The larger and higher offers a better resolution of the illustrations. In the case of the photographs, these are scans made from original photographic prints.
