If you are able to overlook Brier’s geeky appearance—he is funny though—and tendency of repeating every other phrase he utters you will enjoy his lectures. Although it needs a serious update, the program will teach you a thing or two about several well-known and not so famous pharaohs. I was a bit surprised at his use of the word “queen”: the ancient Egyptian language did not have a word for queen. Mr. Brier should also avoid incursions in the realm of philosophy; I was startled by his explanation that Plato’s ideal was a philosopher king. Something he would never dare state today is his criticism to Afrocentrism; he explains the Greeks were fond to trace their philosophy and knowledge to Africa, but they really meant Egypt. There were pharaohs from Nubia, and he went ahead to correctly explain that these were the only Black Africans in the History of Ancient Egypt. In general I quite enjoyed the program—but I have been an addicted to anything related to Ancient Egypt since I was little… NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.
