Thutmose III (Part 1): The Battle of Megiddo.
(1473 BCE) Not long after taking sole power, Thutmose III experienced a dangerous challenge to his rule. Enemies in Canaan had gathered: the King must destroy them, or risk losing his empire. Battle, audacity, and Monty Python ensues!
Listeners note: the original edit of this episode mistakenly referred to the name Har-Megiddo as a Greek term, rather than the correct Hebrew. This error has been fixed.
