HATSHEPSUT PROJECT

HATSHEPSUT PROJECT | Ancient Egypt: 18th Dynasty | Scoop.it

TUESDAY, 6 DECEMBER 2011

Authors note
I am still very much enjoying the fact that loads of information about the Thutmosides is unknown to me. Every now and again i read a snippet of information worth looking into. Its something i enjoy doing and often helps me to increase my own knowledge.

To my knowledge i am the only person who is logging all of Hatshepsut's items as a hobby. That said, i have to be wary of how my own research may be seen by my peers and those who are of a high status in the field who may from time to time check in on the work.

What i have noticed is that a number of people have conducted research into the life of Hatshepsut which (if i can find it) can be of use.

Egyptology News (2011) Statue of Amenhotep III, King Tut’s grandfather, found.

Egyptology News (2011) Statue of Amenhotep III, King Tut’s grandfather, found. | Ancient Egypt: 18th Dynasty | Scoop.it

The Supreme Council of Antiquities says the latest find was made at the king's funerary temple in the southern city of Luxor.
The 44 feet tall statue is made of colored quartzite. It is composed of several large pieces that once put together will depict the king as standing.
The latest find comes after several other relics of the king were unearthed last year in his mortuary temple on the west bank of the Nile River in Luxor.
Amenhotep III, who ruled Egypt between 1390 and 1352BC, is the father of Akhenaten, the "heretic pharaoh" considered a precursor of monotheism because he tried to impose the exclusive worship of Aten.
