Forget History Channel or Discovery Channel. Garbage. Favorite documentaries now-a-days are Zoom lectures sponsored by ARCE and the like.

I see U of Manchester requires two letters of recommendation. For those of us that have not stepped on a college campus in many, many years, how did you satisfy this requirement?

Wasn't it early Dyn 18 that Amun became joined with Re as Amun-Re? Seeing as how Akhenaten chiseled away Amun more than any other god, I too am wondering how Re figures into this.

1. Because Akhenaten's beef was with Amun, not Re.
2. Please show proof that Akhenaten was Tutankhamun's father

Any thoughts on woke-ism changing the study and teaching of Ancient Egyptian/Near-Eastern studies? Received this from the EEF today:

It may well have originally had the head of a lion as that would still be in keeping with solar imagery, but a canine, no, I cannot see that.
OK, but you agree the head is completely out of proportio ...

It seems obvious to me the head is out of proportion to the body and must have been re-carved. Even the man in a hat admitted this awhile back. Now, look at the shape of the back it is straight like ...

+1 on Aidan Dodson. I have a couple of his books and also enjoy his top notch lectures. I just recently watched one put on by some obscure English club and he spent well over an hour on a very detai ...
