This is a fragment of wall relief, with a carving of bowmen on.

It is from Amarna.

The bow and arrow was one of the earliest weapons. It was effective both for hunting and in battle. This carving shows four archers standing side by side. They are probably Nubians. The Nubians were particularly renowned for their archery skills throughout Egyptian history and many served in the Egyptian army.


This is a fragment of a ‘talatat’ or wall relief, with a carving of soldiers, possibly bowmen, on. It is made from stone.

This object probably dates to the reign of Pharaoh Akhenaten, 1353- 1336 BCE. It is over 3,300 years old.
