Episode #221: Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie

We give a brief outline of the almost 3000 years of the ancient Egyptian timeline as currently understood by standard model archaeology. Dynasties, Periods, Kingdoms, what they are, when they occurred, how long they lasted. Hopefully this will help a bit when you read or hear things like "in the 19th dynasty" or "this is an Old Kingdom structure". Much thanks to listener Patty for suggesting we do this.

After that, Kyle reads selections from Petrie's The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh, specifically parts where Petrie is discussing his research on evidence for "anomalous" stone cutting evident on some artifacts from Egypt.

We also tested our ability to stream the recording of this episode live to Twitch. The livestream video should remain up on Twitch for a few weeks, check the channel here if you want to see it, it will give you a bit of "behind the scenes" details and the conversations we have during the breaks.

Episode #220: More Egypt, with Seriah

We're joined by Seriah from Where did the Road Go podcast for a swapcast discussion about our Egypt trip. Seriah always asks great questions, so we have an excellent discussion about our evolving thoughts on the things we learned, and the things we unlearned, during our two weeks in Egypt.

Episode #219: Straight to Pyramids - Part 2

We continue our musings on the Egypt trip this week by responding to many excellent questions and comments from listeners by email and through the Discord server. (To join our Discord, click the connect button on our website here)

We learned a lot from that trip, but in the end we have no answers, only better questions.
