New Kingdom Royal City by Lacovara

This study reveals a highly diversified and unique pattern of habitation in the Nile Valley. The main focus of this work is the New Kingdom which offers the largest number of sites from any one period. Previously, most studies of Egyptian urbanism have focused exclusively on the site of Tell el-Armana which has become the paradigm for ancient Egyptian settlements. Critical to our understanding of Egyptian urbanism is the question of just how representative of pharaonic town planning Amarna truly is. To resolve this problem, this study contrasts Amarna with what available data exists from other sites. One important source for such a comparison is the Second Intermediate Period site of Deir el-Ballas. This "incipient" Amarna may well have served as the prototype for the revised urbanism of the New Kingdom. This study also reviews the data from other New Kingdom settlements on a "micro-spatial" level, dealing with both the forms of individual structures as well as the overall community layout. Comparisons between the overall plans of the various settlements and the various elements which comprise them reveal a "mental temple" of urban structure that existed in ancient Egypt.
