An ancient inscription identified some of the ruins at el Amarna as "The Place of the Letters of the Pharaoh." Discovered there, circa 1887, were nearly four hundred cuneiform tablets containing correspondence of the Egyptian court with rulers of neighboring states in the mid-fourteenth century B.C. Previous translations of these letters were both incomplete and reflected an imperfect understanding of the Babylonian dialects in which they were written. …

It is a generally accepted presumption that during the Late Bronze Age the language accepted for the 'international' or 'diplomatic' written communication between the representatives or members of the particular polities within the Ancient Near East was Akkadian, or more accurately Peripheral Akkadian. Thus it is the aim of this publication to analyse the corpus of Amarna letters on the subject of diplomatic terminology and procedures.

The Amarna Period in Egyptian history is a spectacular time filled with mystery, regardless of the massive research and analysis of Egyptologists and layman enthusiasts. Because religion played such a significant role in all of Egypt's history, the period becomes a grand anomaly worthy of such focus. Most of the research and excavations surrounding this period focus on five areas. These areas include the main players during the period, who are certainly not limited to Akhenaten and Nefertiti, the city founded by Akhenaten from which the period derives its name, the religion of the period, the art of the period and the period's literature (specifically correspondence known as the Amarna Letters).

Lors de son règne, le pharaon Akhenaton a brisé tous les codes religieux de son temps en instaurant une religion monothéiste et par là-même une monarchie absolue. Il a marqué cette rupture en déplaçant la capitale administrative de Thèbes, ville des prêtres, à Amarna, sa ville nouvelle. Sur place, il y a fait construire un temple à ciel ouvert en l'honneur du soleil. La gloire d'Amarna n'a duré que le temps du règne d'Akhenaton qui semble avoir été mouvementé. La mégalomanie du pharaon a marqué son temps et fascine encore les archéologues contemporains.

Les auteurs de ce manuel ont réuni, pour la première fois sous une forme condensée, maniable et claire, la totalité des documents et des références indispensables aux étudiants en archéologie et en histoire de l'art de l'Égypte ancienne, de la préhistoire aux époques ptolémaïque et romaine.
