Episode #120: Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt - Part 2

This is part two of what is now obviously going to be a three-part series on a detailed look at engineer Chris Dunn's book, "Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt". In this part, we go back to the beginning of the book where Dunn is studying aspects of the many enormous monolithic statues that can be found in temples all over Egypt. Again and again, his studies find evidence of advanced planning, advanced machining, and the ability to check precision to a very high degree of accuracy.

We also read some very interesting accounts from the book, taken from the writings of explorers from previous centuries who delved into the Serapeum tunnels when the entrance was still concealed under sand.

There is so much information in this book! Part three coming next week.



  1. Nothing is worse then hearing last break during this episode. Keep up the great work.

  2. Hope the baby trees made it okay! Two things I love, farms/gardens, and wild ideas. Now that I know that you're repping both I like you guys even more. Keep doing what you do, thanks for the detailed breakdown of so much info, including this latest series on this fascinating sounding book. For example, I didn't know about the crazy boxes at Serapeum until I heard y'all talk about them. Mind: blown, continually. So yeah, that's all. Loving the old episodes, cheers, hisses, and rattles from weird ol' Austin!

  3. Thank you for going forward with the podcast, when those sweet bitty twiglets are shivering and praying for their blankies as the Frigid Gale Saps their waning life force. You clearly place a high value on satisfying your audience!
    Hope none of your body parts freeze and break off. Well, since I'm posting this taunt three years later, I hope nothing FROZE and broke off. Thanks for all the laughs -- they almost keep me sane.
