One response to “Dr Finn reports from Egypt

  1. I have a question concerning Jacquetta Hawkes’ ideas concerning Egypt and early agriculture. In her Summary Charts, she indicates the use of “Irrigation” with a long bar as early as 5000-3000 period. However the “Agriculture” bar is non-existent in all the periods except a tiny bar in 8000-5000 period. Why does she suggest that Egypt did not have agriculture when clearly they did? Does anyone else wonder about her thoughts on this? thx
