Link Love: Egypt and Rome

For those of you suffering UGC withdrawal (ha), here's a couple of links to sustain you:

  1. "Radar Scans in ing Tut's Tomb Suggest Hidden Chambers" (National Geographic): There might be more to King Tut's tomb (maybe the tomb of Nefertiti is hidden just behind a wall?)
  2. "From Gladiator Duels to Caesar's Last Words: The Myths of Ancient Rome" (NPR): Fresh Air interviews historian Mary Beard about her newest book, SPQR, and all of the things she loves (and doesn't) about popular portrayals of emperors, gladiators, and Roman women.
