    Hey Mark,

    The BERT course sounds awesome!!

    I am currently reading Temples, Tombs and Hieroglyphs; The Story of Egyptology by Barbara Mertz. It’s a dated book but still very interesting. It also talks about William (Flinders) Petrie who is the pioneer of systematic methodology.

    There’s one part of the book where it describes how Petrie lay on his back for a few hours in a tiny passage in a pyramid. His body was submerged under filthy water and only his face above his ears was protruding above the water as he took down inscription details.

    Btw it’s great to see an older fellow following his dream to get an BA in Archaeology. Well done!!
