"Amarna Sunrise: Egypt from Golden Age to Age of Heresy" by Egyptologist Aidan Dodson (Senior Research Fellow, Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Bristol) traces the history of Egypt from the death of the great warrior-king Thutmose III to the high point of Akhenaten's reign, when the known world brought gifts to his newly-built capital city of Amarna, in particular looking at the way in which the cult of the sun became increasingly important to even 'orthodox' kings, culminating in the transformation of Akhenaten's father, Amenhotep III, into a solar deity in his own right.
