It is a fun way to preview the items of interest at the museum, whether or not you eventually travel there to see it in person. I have been to the British Museum and always get overwhelmed by the crowds and the many pieces on display. It was wonderful to be refreshed on Egyptian history and "Egypto-mania" and then see the pieces at the museum and the stories behind their creation, purpose and later discovery. Plus, I live in Kentucky and my 16 year old niece lives in California. I bought two tickets, sent her the link and it was a great experience to for us to share and discuss later!
Thank you for organizing these Conversations. The guides are very well informed and communicate well. There are some technical issues with some of the guides, but we're all learning how to function just now, so we have to be patient.
I thought it was very well done. It was limited to a few "popular" Egyptology subjects and provided a lot of information without getting too detailed so to lose people.
