Carter, famous for the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, worked alongside
Petrie in the winter of 1891-2 at Amarna. Petrie and Carter managed to study
the Palace and Great Temple, a number of houses in the Main City, the stones
marking the city’s boundaries, patrol roads for the city, and quarries. They
also found areas of manufacturing, notably for faience and glass, as well
as artist’s trial pieces like the one shown here.
In the Palace, Petrie uncovered remains of beautifully decorated architectural features with painted pavements.
