You have twelve lectures and you spend 4 of them on: Carter discovering Tutankhamen's tomb, Alexander the Great, Ptolemy I, and Cleopatra VII. That's a third of your time spent on non-Egyptians. It's fine, but could have been a lot better. Also the way Bob Brier speaks reminds me of Columbo.

Lots of interesting information, but his tendency to repeat random sentences drove me a bit nuts. Apparently it's a speech pattern that would take some getting used to (he's not repeating important information for emphasis, it's more a conversational style).

Very general but it is rather fun listening to Brier.

I was hoping for more in-depth discussion, but I did learn quite a lot.
