Hatshepsut (Prologue/Part I).
From 1495 - 1490 BCE, Hatshepsut acts as regent for her step-son, the nominal King of Egypt Thutmose III.
But the Queen Regent has plans, and soon begins to consolidate her power, encouraging the support of officials, priests and nobles to bolster her authority over the Two Lands...

Dominic, hope you enjoyed your holidays. With due respect> Following your advice I checked Agora and the first thing I came across didnt exactly impress me. Something called THE CRISIS IN THE *sic* UKRAINE. Not only not historical, but political. Highly polarizing to be accurate. I would like to describe the podcasters -apparently two regulars- as Kremlin apologists. But they display such a POOR knowledge of the issue in historical, cultural and political terms that they can only be described as useful idiots. Men, they dont even get their basic geography right. Dont know if youre aware of that quality level. Dont know if you even mind. I have followed your show through and through since day 1. But if you have joined that grouping and I keep listening to you, I will be endorsing that kind of crap, somehow even sponsoring it. I guess its time to bid farewell.
