Excavations at Akhenaten's Sun-Temple
For those who are seriously interested in exploring and uncovering the magnificence of ancient Egypt, continuing excavations outside the eastern gate of the great Temple of Karnak of ancient Thebes offers an opportunity difficult to overlook.

From May 14 to June 29, 2006, a Pennsylvania State University team under the direction of Donald Redford will be conducting investigations of the complex associated with the Sun Temple, built by the famous heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten. Excavations will also include an exploration of nearby domestic residences. If you are interested, read more.
