I recently stumbled across a YouTube channel which makes facial reconstructions of ancient figures (e.g.: Caligula) along with a little context about the rulers/period being covered. The link to the channel is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgokSYCEqZE_yVLswO1vPXg and the owner/creator has given me kind permission to show you the reconstructions of people relevant to us. So, when a relevant episode comes up for the first time, I’ll add an image of their facial reconstruction to the episode post on the website. For example, when we discuss what’s been going on in Egypt, there’ll be a representation of Ptolemy I, who we recently finished covering.
Not every ruler has their own reconstruction, but I thought it would be interesting to have a bit of variety from statues and coins.
That’s it from me, see you all next episode!
