Nefertiti and the Computer
Nefertiti was the most beautiful and famous of queens of ancient Egypt. Was she also one of the most powerful? A remarkable research project strongly suggests this was so. At Karnak in Egypt, 3,300 years ago, the heretic pharaoh Akhenaten, husband of Nefertiti, built a vast and brightly painted temple for his new religion. After his death the priests of the old religion hastened to destroy it, leaving only some 45,000 carved stone blocks scattered in the core of the later monuments as witness to its short-lived glory. In the early 1970s Ray Winfield Smith, former US diplomat and general, directed a project, which by use of a computer has rediscovered for the first time the nature and shape of Akhenaten's temple complex. As well, it produced a quite new assessment of Nefertiti's status and importance. Introduced by Magnus Magnusson
