Jacquelyn Williamson talks about her work reconstructing wall reliefs from the site, and its precarious condition. Starting in the late s and ending in the s Barry Kemp and the members of the Egypt Exploration Society team excavated an area called Kom el-Nana , located in one of the southernmost sections of Tell el-Amarna. They were able to document a large walled compound the size of five American football fields that held many different structures inside. In addition to an industrial scale brewery one of only a few from Amarna there were two stone buildings and several brick buildings, one of which is likely to be a Window of Appearance structure. One of the most intriguing features of the site however is the fact that it is divided down the center by a wall running west to east, slicing the square-ish enclosure into unequal halves. Unfortunately the Maru Aten does not exist anymore, having been swallowed up by encroaching fields and urban development. The same fate sadly awaits Kom el-Nana unless steps can be taken to save this precious structure.
