Episode 67b: The Battle of Megiddo

A Dramatic Reading.

In c. 1473 BCE, Thutmose III achieved his most notable victory. To help me bring the story to life, I’ve enlisted the help of several fellow podcasters. The result is a dramatic performance of Thutmose’s epic account, as it was written on the walls of Karnak Temple!
