New light on Akhenaten at Karnak: The ARCE Talatat Project

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As part of the ARCE Khonsu Temple Conservation Project, the ARCE Talatat Project, has been documenting approximately 16,000 talatat blocks from Akhenaten’s first temple to the Aten, which are stored in the so-called ‘Pennsylvania’ magazine at Karnak. The magazine, which was constructed in the late 1950s, abuts the west wall of the Khonsu Temple, and is one of several storage areas around Karnak containing Akhenaten blocks. The talatat in this magazine were recorded between 1966 and 1975 by the Akhenaten Temple Project, which was sponsored by University Museum, Pennsylvania. However, this earlier project documented the blocks in situ, whereas the current ARCE Talatat Project, working in the magazine from 2008 to 2010, removed all of the blocks from the magazine for cleaning, conservation, documentation and digital photography, before restacking them in the magazine. This method of documentation has made possible a more thorough examination of each of the talatat, resulting in some interesting discoveries, which will be discussed in this paper.
