I enjoyed that one too. :-) Those are among my favorite channels as well. Count me in on the "history geek" list. I love almost all ancient cultures and have studied the similarities between them (or at least 10 of them anyway) as research for the "Talismans of Time" series, book 2 "Atlantis Reprieved". There are some very intersesting correlations found throughout various mythologies around the world. My story "Ra's Warrior" the prose version has pretty much gone the way of the do-do bird though. It's much more interesting redrafting it as a graphic novel script. My cousin, who graduated with a 4.0 from Graphic Design school, is my artist & when I saw my main character on paper, I fell in love with her. Contrary to popular thought, we work very well together even though we're family. After the holidays, once she has all the character sketches finished, we'll be putting the story together. We're still debating over how we want to publish it.

If you haven't read, "The Mummy or Ramses the Da#&ed" by Anne Rice, you'd love it! It's got Cleopatra's name all over it and in a very interesting way. That's my all time favorite book. Ramses is so handsome. It was supposed to be turned into a movie, but I don't think it happened. After she turned to writing for God, I pretty much stopped reading her work. I have no desire to be preached to when I'm supposed to be reading fiction.

Blessings,
Lynn

Marci,
I too was disappointed by this change. I respect it and understand, but she lost a reader in me as well.
Brightest blessings,
Lynn

This list of discoveries seems to be growing! A Rare Egyptian tomb of a warrior from the 11th Dynasty has been discovered in Luxor. I love National Geographic!
