Howard 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.
