Book Description

This book follows the life story of Amenhotep III, one of the most important rulers of ancient Egypt, from his birth and into the afterlife. Amenhotep III ruled for 38 years, from ca. 1391-1353, during the apex of Egypt's international and artistic power. Through the exploration of the abundant evidence from this period, in the form of both textual and material culture, Arielle P. Kozloff re-creates of all aspects of Egyptian civilization at the height of the Mediterranean Bronze Age.

As a New Kingdom Egypt scholar, especially of the Amarna Period, I am always happy to find books based on recent research. This one is very good at looking at possible influences on Amenhotep III from his early life. But don't take eveyting the author writes as accurate: one glaring error concerns the mummy referred to as the "Younger Lady" from the cache in KV35. Recent DNA tests ID her as the daughter of Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye, thus the full sister of Akhenaten. The DNA tests also indicate she is the mother of Tutankhamen, and herein lies my main complaint with the author's work. She takes as fact Joann Flectcher's identification of this mummy as Nefertiti - but Nefertiti's titles NEVER include King's Daughter, thus indicating that she could NOT have been a sister to her husband, Akhenaten.

So I'd recommend this book for the work on its title subject, but keep your conclusions in reserve on the rest.

10/26/2014 - Addendum - Dr Aidan Dodson has pointed out in his new book, "Amarna Sunrise" that if Akhenaten and Nefertiti were 1st cousins (Akhenaten being the son of Queen Tiye and Nefertiti being the daughter of Tiye's brother), the DNA results would be similar to those of siblings. Given the difficulty with getting accurate results from ancient DNA, this makes the theory that "Younger Lady" is Nefertiti at least possible.

Arielle Kozloff's AMENHOTEP III is an extraordinary read. Her writing style flows effortlessly, enriched by a lifetime of observation and study of Egypt past and present--on the very ground, in collections and literature, and even from above via Google Earth. The author's account of her Pharaoh's monumentally magnificent Heb-Sed festival, bringing together the myriad bits of scattered information into a jaw-dropping mind's eye spectacle is alone worth the price.

As noted by other reviewers, there are positions taken which are arguably unsupported by the evidence or by current discoveries. Kozloff's proposed scenario of Egypt's catastrophic decline beginning near the end of Amenhotep's reign, and deepening considerably under the four pharaohs who followed, does not appear to this reviewer to be in accord with the numerous building programs of Akhenaten and Tutankhamen, the unsurpassed stone carving during Ay's very short reign, and the amount of gold he used to bury Tutankhamen. We know both Ay and his successor Horemheb had large and elaborately painted royal tombs with finely carved hard-stone sarcophagi which do not augur for austerity.

A few of the black-and-white photos are indistinct, but all-in-all this is a book of uncommon insight and original perceptions, a scholarly work which makes the wonder of Ancient Egypt come alive. What the ancient world authentically was like, however, still remains a mystery.

A very thorough review of the information gleaned to date. Amenhotep III comes across as a ruler during unprecedented wealth and monumental construction projects, whose self-deification and movement to fuse Egyptian pantheism into a monotheistic framework was mystifying and, together with his son's reign, caused a wrenching upheaval. I found the hint of a tie between the 7-year documentation gap, the king's pleas to Sekhmet and the Bible's Exodus story particularly intriguing. I hope the author will follow up on that.
