Esteemed Egyptologist Barbara Mertz updates her widely praised social history of the people of ancient Egypt, which was originally published in 1968. Combining impeccable scholarship with a delightfully personal style, the author reconstructs the life of the Egyptians from birth to death, and beyond death, too. She also presents much fascinating detail on the building of the pyramids and the intricate art of mummification. Students and laymen alike will enjoy the wealth of authentic material on every aspect of Egyptian life that Mertz provides.

Dr. Mertz has good credentials, so who am I to take issue with her?
But, take issue I will.

She pooh-poohs the exodus from Egypt on the grounds that there is no archaeological evidence. As I learned from another archaeology lecture series, lack of evidence is not evidence of lack. That lecturer, in fact, used the exodus as an example. Could one expect to find a hole from a tent stake in the desert sands from well over 2,000 years ago?

I trust that the lecture series has a lot to offer. However, based on Dr. Mertz's standard exemplified in the first disk, I packed up her presentation.
