(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.
