The Amarna Project
The ancient Egyptian city of Tell el-Amarna (or simply Amarna) was the short-lived capital built by the ‘heretic’ Pharaoh Akhenaten and abandoned shortly after his death (c. 1332 BCE). It was here that he pursued his vision of a society dedicated to the cult of one god, the power of the sun (the Aten). As well as this historic interest Amarna remains the largest readily accessible living-site from ancient Egypt. It is thus simultaneously the key to a chapter in the history of religious experience and to a fuller understanding of what it was like to be an ancient Egyptian. There is no other site like it.
The Theban Mapping Project
The Theban Mapping Project has been working in Thebes and particularly the Valley of the Kings for nearly three decades. The project and its focus have changed a lot over this period of time and even now the Theban Mapping Project continues to develop and expand.

The excavation and enhancement project at the site of the Temple of Millions of Years of Pharaoh Tutmosis III began in 2008 and is the result of cooperation between the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and the University of Seville (Spain)
