Laird Scranton is joining us for a special afternoon episode to talk about his new book, The Mystery of Skara Brae: Neolithic Scotland and the Origins of Ancient Egypt, as well as delve deep into the subject of how the oldest and most well preserved neolithic site in the UK is connected to the Dogon People 5000 Km away, and early dynastic Egypt!
as always for big featured guests, we dig deep with Laird through is vast trove of internal knowledge to explore the profound concepts to get one step closer to the bottom of the most important questions:
“Where do we come from, and why are we here?”
