"Music in the Amarna Period", THE AKHETATEN SUN, Vol 16, No 1 Spring 2010

Music and song were essential in both temple and at court during the Amarna Period. In fact, music in some form or other seems to have surrounded Akhenaten and his family at almost all times when they were in public. It should be seen as the essential element of the cultural revolution that has mystified and intrigued us for well over a century.

K. Ryholt, The Political Situation in Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period, c. 1800-1550 B.C. CNI Publications 20. Copenhagen: Museum Tusculanum Press, 1997. xiv + 463 pages.

""The Second Intermediate Period designates the 250 year period (1800-1550 BC) which separates the two glorious periods of the Middle Kingdom and the New Kingdom. During the 19th century BC, an invasion by Canaanite tribes into the Delta took place. Around 1800 BC these people proclaimed their own king and the Delta thus became independent from the rest of Egypt. Egypt remained split between the Canaanitic rulers in North and the native Egyptian Kings in the South for the rest of the Second Intermediate Period. The division of Egypt brought about an economic decline, and the entire period...

The Fate of the Temples in Late Antique Egypt

As elsewhere the fate of the temples in late antique Egypt has often been perceived through the lens of the (Christian) literary works, which tell dramatic stories of the destruction of temples and their conversion into churches. When one looks at the other types of sources available from Egypt—inscriptions, papyri and archaeological remains—however, it becomes abundantly clear that the story of what happened to the temples was usually much less dramatic. This article argues that, in order to get a more reliable and complex picture of the fate of the temples, it is best to study...

Urban Empty Spaces: Contentious Places for Consensus-Building

As a relatively recent human phenomenon, cities are the physical culmination of many pre-existing psychological, social and cognitive capacities. The persistent presence of deliberately empty spaces in urban areas both past and present signals the conscious creation and maintenance of those locales at various levels: household, neighbourhood and civic/centralizing. Domestic empty space, in particular the space between and among habitations, was likely to have been curated and managed at the household level. However, neighbourhood-level and urban-level empty spaces were subject to multiple...
