A short book by page numbers especially considering that the main text ends at 66% with the rest taken up by notes and references but truly packed full of information Remarkably despite how popular the Amarna era is even in the general consciousness there are surprisingly few biographies of Nefertiti Aidan Dodson s Amarna Sunset doesn t specifically focus on Nefertiti Joann Fletcher s The Search for Nefertiti comes off as part autobiography and not exactly objective and other books are outdated and poor popular histories or else dense academic publications which take some expense to acuireTyldesley s work on the other hand is professional and yet accessible thorough in its research and an enjoyable read That s not to deny that the book has caveats Tyldesley herself acknowledges that even despite her fame we still know surprisingly little about Nefertiti so there are sections of the book where she discusses the Amarna era and royal family in general rather than being able to specifically focus down on her individual subject I can hardly penalise Tyldesley for this though when the evidence simply isn t there or at least hasn t been discovered yet The second caveat is that this book really needs a new updated edition Discoveries in the past decade have really turned Amarna studies on its head with some of the debates that Tyldesley examines here now offered serious challengers in terms of plausible scenarios Tyldesley may still not agree with these new proposed scenarios but it would be great to see her consider the evidence and weigh in with her assessment Even lacking this recent evidence Tyldesley addresses previously held possible scenarios with an even hand noting her own conclusions but always making it clear that they are hers and not necessarily the right ones whilst presenting the arguments presented by other Egyptologists I have to note that I myself didn t agree with some of those conclusions for example Smenkhkare as Akhenaten s son and both he and Tutankhamun mothered by Kiya but it is always appreciated when a professional approach is taken and a historian refrains from attempting to claim that their favoured interpretation is factI have no ualms about recommending this book at all8 out of 10
