Be part of the Great Aten Temple!

Donate one block for 5 Euros and help us reconstruct the Great Aten Temple!

The ancient city of Tell el-Amarna, located 300km south of Cairo, is under permanent threat from modern building and agricultural activity. In consequence, the Amarna Project is excavating and reconstructing the city's most important ceremonial building: The Great Aten Temple .

Alongside our ongoing excavations on behalf of the Amarna Project, we are replacing the stones removed after the abandonment of the city with limestone blocks from the famous Tura quarries near Cairo, making the building outlines visible.

You can help us by donating one or more limestone blocks for 5 Euros each, which will carry your name or the inscription of your choice. 
Thus, you will become a part of the ancient city and help to protect one of the most important buildings of Ancient Egypt.
