The New Kingdom Royal City

Front Cover
Kegan Paul International, 1997 - History - 202 pages
To resolve this problem, this study contrasts Amarna with what available data exists from other sites. One important source for such a comparison is the Second Intermediate Period site of Deir el-Ballas. This 'incipient Amarna' may well have served as the prototype for the revised urbanism of the New Kingdom. This study also reviews the data from other New Kingdom settlements on a 'micro-spatial' level, dealing with both the arms of individual structures as well as the overall community layout. Comparisons between the overall plans of the various settlements and the various elements which comprise them reveal a 'mental template' of urban structure that existed in ancient Egypt.
