Berlin marks centenary of Nefertiti bust's find
BERLIN (AP) — A famed bust of Egypt's Queen Nefertiti is getting some new company to mark the centenary of its discovery: an exhibition of works giving a taste of the site where it was found.
The show, "In the Light of Amarna — 100 Years of the Nefertiti Discovery," opens at Berlin's Neues Museum on Thursday — a century to the day after a German excavator unearthed the 3,300-year-old limestone bust of the wife of Pharaoh Akhenaton in southern Egypt.
Nefertiti is the centerpiece of the show of some 600 objects — many held in the Berlin museum's stories over the decades.
They range from a bust of Akhenaton himself, through fragments from the workshop where Nefertiti was found, to remains of ancient Egyptian homes.
The exhibition runs until April 13.
