Working on my homework right now. Smile

One of the questions is regarding Nerekh. Of course I don't want anyone to answer the question for me (that's why I'm not giving it), but I can't find anything online or even in the study material about it.

Has anyone ever heard about a place called Nerekh or is this very likely a typo?

Perhaps you mean the city of Nekhen (Greek: Hierakonpolis)?

If so, Google both terms and I suspect you will find information on this ancient city.

Thank you both. I will contact the college, I believe they made a typo and I can't really know for certain what they meant.

Typos in college courses, eh! Not a great way to keep the class well informed. Either way- good luck with your studies.

You'd be surprised. I've noticed there are more typos the further I get into the material. I think the editors gave up towards the end. Smile

But most typos are grammar and style, not in the names as far as I can tell.
