Re: [ANE-2] Even Hatshepsut Podcasts Now!
- WQXR is a radio station, hence not PBS (a television network), and it is a commercial station wholly owned by the New York Times (hence not NPR).

Subject: [ANE-2] Even Hatshepsut Podcasts Now!
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has recently begun offering podcasts
of their special exhibitions including that of Hatshepsut from
earlier this year:
It's an 11-minute narration from a local PBS radio station (WQXR)
with an actor reading the part of excavator, Herbert Winlock. He
describes finding "The Hatshepsut Hole" at the Deir el-Bahri mortuary
temple. I got a kick out of his description of finding foundation
stones of an 11th dynasty wall "meters above" 18th dynasty artifacts
(scarabs & beads)!
This downloadable .MP3 is a nice idea, & I hope more museums catch on
& offer them for future exhibits. It's not the same as an audio
guide that you'd hear while strolling through the exhibit; it's
simply intended as a supplement before or after.
"Hatshepsut: From Queen to Pharaoh" has since moved to The Kimbell
Art Museum in Fort Worth, TX:
George Michael Grena, II
Redondo Beach, CA
