On this episode we chat with Egyptologist Nicholas Brown who has worked as an archaeologist in Egypt for ten years. He received his MA degree in Egyptology from the American University in Cairo, and currently is an Egyptology PhD student at UCLA. Currently he lives between Los Angeles, CA and Cairo, Egypt. His excavation experience includes working with archaeological sites in Aswan as well as funerary sites in Luxor, Amarna and the Sudan. In 2016, He has conducted archival research for the MFA, Boston’s Egyptian Art Department's exhibit "Ancient Nubia Now."
