The Amarna Trust

The Amarna Trust works to support archaeological research at Tell el-Amarna in Middle Egypt. It provides funding for ongoing survey and excavation, facilitates conservation of the remains, and works to promote access to and appreciation of the site by both Egyptian and international visitors.

Charity Registration No. 1161292


The ancient city of Amarna continues to transform our understanding of how human society has developed. Not only was it home to the heretic king Akhenaten, his wife Nefertiti and the young Tutankhamun, it remains one of the world’s pre-eminent archaeological sites for understanding how people lived in the pre-Classical world. Its exploration has given us masterpieces like the bust of Nefertiti at the same time as providing a deeper understanding of what it was like to be an ancient Egyptian.

This year we are celebrating 40 years of continuous work at Amarna. To celebrate this milestone, and with so much work left to do, we are embarking on an ambitious fundraising campaign to support the future of archaeological research at Amarna. 

In 2017, we are asking you to get involved with:

  • Excavating the Great Aten Temple
  • Conserving our collection of decorated coffins
  • Archiving our pottery data
  • Publishing the South Tombs Cemetery
  • Supporting our Field Station and Office

Every penny of your gift will be put towards the exploration, documentation and protection of Egypt’s one-time capital. Join our community of supporters today and become part of something extraordinary.
