Between 2002 and 2006, the Egypt Exploration Society's expedition to Amarna made a detailed study of the house of the chariot-officer Ranefer, first excavated in 1921. Particular attention was paid to the remains of an underlying earlier and smaller house that had been largely demolished to make way for Ranefers own. At the same time a group of smaller houses for the ordinary people of the city were excavated for the first time, in an adjacent part of the site called Grid 12. Together they represent a cross-section of residential life at Amarna. The results are presented in two complementary volumes, the first devoted to the excavation, architecture and environmental remains, and the second to the objects. They lead on to reflections on domestic living and manufacture at Amarna, and on social dividing lines within the city.
