Question Time! (Q+A)

To celebrate 100 episodes, I took your questions on all things ancient Egypt. If you didn’t hear your question, I have sent out written responses. Some questions covered material already in the show, or on topics that don’t have enough evidence to discuss in detail.

Thanks for submitting!
