Abstract

Fieldwork at Amarna from autumn 2020 through autumn 2021 included a second season of excavation at the North Desert Cemetery, and the continuation of several post-excavation projects. Those reported on here are the preliminary study of skeletal materials and hair from the North Desert Cemetery itself, along with the ongoing study of textiles from the South Tombs and North Cliffs Cemeteries. Site management initiatives included the construction of two protective boundary walls at the north end of Amarna.
