“This is the first book written by archaeologist and broadcaster Mary Chubb about her adventures and experiences on various digs in the Near East and East Mediterranean. This story concerns her time at the site of Tell el Amarna in Egypt, the city of Akhenaten, in 1930. Written as a novel, but full of historical facts and real-life experiences.”

Amazon review: “Over fifty years ago when I became fascinated with the Amarna Period I bought this book. I have read it every two or three years since then, and I still enjoy it. Mary Chubb was sent by the Egypt Exploration Society on an archaeological expedition to the ancient Egyptian City of Akhetaton ( in modern times known as Amarna) as the secretary and general helper to the team. This book is the a memoire of that expedition. You meet the archaeologists, their trained native workers, and the people who provided the day to day services. There is a sort of magic to the whole thing, the tragic ruins form a background for real day to day excavation of a city that was home to the legendary Nefertiti. Although not a “how to” book there is enough history and archaeology to make this a charming and very entertaining read. It always makes me wish that I could have been there with them!”
