Amarna Roundup

It is good to see the Madrid database of Berlin Amarna tablet photographs, Las tablillas de El Amarna en el Vorderasiatisches Museum de Berlín, online since the 1990s, getting well deserved attention in ancient oriented news blogs.  It is always worthwhile supporting projects providing open access to scholarly resources.

Scholarly editions of the Amarna texts are published in transliteration in the Amarna Corpus, a component of Oracc: The Open Richly Annotated Cuneiform Corpus.  Shlomo Izre'el's transliteration of the Amarna corpus is at The Amarna Tablets.  All of this is also open access.

Readers interested more generally in Amarna may also wish to examine Barry Kemp's Virtual Amarna Project, openly published in October by the Archaeology Data Service, and some archival video footage of 1930s excavations at Amarna published online by the Egypt Exploration Society.
