Interview: Ancient Lives with Prof. Elizabeth Frood

Two Kiwis Nerding Out. My guest today is Dr. Elizabeth Frood, Associate Professor of Egyptology and Director of the Griffith Institute at the University of Oxford, UK. In a lively discussion, Prof. Frood shares her insights into ancient lives and how people living in the non-royal sphere approached their immortality. Statues, texts and graffiti show us the minds of these people and how they depicted their concerns, beliefs and ideas. It's a great conversation and I think you'll really enjoy it! Book, Biographical Texts from Ramessid Egypt, 2007. Background: Oxford academic page and research info at Academia.edu. Story: Egypt, fieldwork and physical disabilities; BBC - the infection which took my nose and legs; Facebook - the Egyptologist who almost lost everything.
