Thank God Professor Podamy - I believe I may call her Amanda now - stayed with archaeology and didn't become a mere Bangle. I was riveted from beginning to end, and the only fault the series has is that it is only 24 lectures long. As someone who thinks of himself as a (minor) historian how come I didn't know much about this? A truly important and memorable series of lectures. Mesopotamia is now an eterna flame in my heart. Thanks Amanda.
