Amarna Diplomacy - A Short Video Introduction

The fourth is AMARNA DIPLOMACY. The beginning of diplomacy is usually traced back to Italian renaissance cities (Venice, Milano, Genoa) when city states started exchanging resident ambassadors back in the 15th century. Today, it is clearly proven that the first diplomacy began much earlier. It was in Tel el-Amarna 3.400 years ago. More is available in the video....

Alexandria 1 Reply

De - I do not know if you felt disappointed when you visited Alexandria. It is a good example of "managing expectations". There are high "visual" historical expectations linked to Alexandra (library,…Continue

Akhenaten & Amarna

I forgot that we have "in house expertise" in archeology. Mina, please be more proactive. Mina and De mentioned Akhenaten. He is probably one of the most controversial among pharaohs. He moved…Continue

That's a very brilliant idea Jovan, I will try to read the suggested readings but I am more interested in what our Egyptian friends have to share. I had the chance to go before but my visit only covered the very modern Sharm :) the info left in my head about ancient Egypt is related to the history lessons I took at school and my visit to the Egyptian section at the British museum!

Thanks, Jovan! A million years ago (in WSIS Phase I), IISD co-organized a workshop with GKP for young women leaders in ICT from the Middle East and North Africa, hosted by MCIT in Cairo. We had all of six hours to play tourists, but the visit was completely unforgettable. Looking forward to the course!

PS The website tour wouldn't load for me in either FF or IE (with Java enabled).

Dear Jovan - what a treat! As usual I don't have time, but perhaps I can squeeze a little bit here and there? Forgive me if I'm not a good student - in terms of attendance and assignments. :-)
Without looking it up I would place Cairo in Lower Egypt - but the way you phrase the question makes me suspect that I'm probably wrong.
My favourite Egypt "place" is Alexandria - early exposure to Lawrence Durell - but also a professional fascination with the concept of the Great Library.
My favourite person - Akhenatan who was true to himself.
My father was also in Egypt, but at least ten years before your father and some years before my arrival too.
