Timewatch
The Pharoah's Lost City
Zaterdag 26 januari van 21:10 tot 22:00 op BBC TWO
History series. More than 3000 years ago, the rebel Pharaoh Akhenaten marched his people from his capital Thebes to build a new city in the desert. It took 20 years to build. The people of this city worshipped in the world's first monotheistic religion, overseen by Akhenaten and his beautiful Queen Nefertiti. The city was designed as a religious utopia.

But, after 25 years of digging, experts are suggesting that Akhenaten was nothing but a despot.

Op de site van de BBC is (of misschien ondertussen: was) dit te lezen in verband met de uitzending:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7209472.stm

Evidence of the brutal lives endured by some ancient Egyptians to build the monuments of the Pharaohs has been uncovered by archaeologists.

"The incidence of youthful death amongst the Amarna population was shockingly high by any standard." Not many lived beyond 35. Two-thirds were dead by 20.

But even this backbreaking schedule may not be enough to explain the extreme death pattern at Amarna.

Even Akhanaten's son, Tutankhamen, died aged just 20; and archaeologists are now beginning to believe that there might also have been an epidemic here.

This corroborates the historical records of Egypt's principal enemy, the Hittites, which tell of the devastation of an epidemic caught from Egyptians captured in battle around the time of Tutankhamen's reign. It appears this epidemic may also have been the final blow to the people of Amarna.


Misschien ter overweging:

Epidemie als oorzaak van het verlaten van de traditionele goden en een nieuwe epidemie misschien (mede-)oorzaak van het korte bestaan van Achetaton?
