Episode 65: Hatshepsut of Millions of Years

Hatshepsut (Part V): Monuments and the Jubilee.


From 1485-1477, regnal years 10-17 of Hatshepsut, the Kingdom of Egypt is in a flurry of building work. Monuments are going up all over Egypt, requiring the work of thousands.

These projects culminate in the year 16 sed-festival, Hatshepsut’s grand jubilee: an anniversary….but of what?

Additional vocals provided by Anya Banerjee (Actress).
