A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of interviewing Egyptologist and Archeologist Hannah Pethen Barrett before she headed to Egypt for a month of adventure and studiesand in the course of our conversation, asked her,
based on what she’s learned, what her favorite bed time story would be if she had kids. The young archeologist said she’s not a “mum” yet, but when they do come along, a definite Egyptian bedtime story she looks forward to telling is the story of The Shipwrecked Sailor.
According to Pethen, who you can follow on Twitter @HannahPethen, this story didn’t originate as a bedtime story in Egypt, but it’s been around a long time and in our studies we found it’s even been illustrated and marketed as such over time.
We won’t spoil it here, but rather let Hannah share it with you.
