ADFAS Noosa's next talk is on Saturday 16 June will be given by Dr Rodna Siebels on the HERETIC KING - AKENATEN.

Towards the end of the 18th Dynasty, Amenhotep IV suddenly changed his name to Akhenaten, ceased his worship of the god Amun in favour of a new god, the Aten, and moved his capital to a new site, Akhetaten. With this change came a departure from the traditional artistic norm of Egypt both in subject matter and the rendering of the human form. The lecture examines this turbulent time and seeks possible answers to the radical change that swept Egypt for some 20 years and just as quickly vanished.

This lecture will be a must for all who are interested in Egyptology. The talk goes for an hour and after,  all are invited for drinks and nibbles. Visitors welcome $25 on the door. Contact Joan Trusler to book on 0436 323 776 or trusler.joan@gmail.com.
