The Amaranan Revolution in Egypt: Nefertiti, Akhenate, and Tutamkhamen The ancient Egyptian city of Tell el-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, Aten, the power of the sun. You might not recognize the king's name but his son Tut, and his wife Nefertiti lives on. Come learn more about a unique moment in Egypt's history.
Lecture will be presented by Art Historian Mary Drobny, with a tour of the Torrance Art Museum to follow.
