    She was a Ptolemy, part of a Greek dynasty founded by one of Alexander the Great's generals when he conquered Egypt - the religious practices and beliefs you refer to from a past age and were not part of their belief structure which was essentially Greek. In any case Roman Octavian who was in charge wouldn't care a fig and took any treasure available.

    Read my previous posts - her ashes were interred in a tomb with those of Mark Anthony but it's location has been lost. Her suicide was useful to Octavian as it made a complete Roman take over of Egypt 'politically' easier but he was concerned lest her treasures were cremated with her. This was documented by Roman historians

    As said earlier Octavian snaffled it and presumably took it back to Rome

    They can still find a tomb and doubtless it might contain items of significant archaeological value. 2,000 years tend to add value

    "The Battle of Britain - Won by the British, or lost by the Germans?"
    Tuesday 9th February 2021 at 7.30pm

    'The Battle of Britain is one of the few historical events to occupy a prominent place in both British popular awareness and the work of historians. Its importance in our national memory is shown by the immediate references to it whenever a crisis is on the horizon, Brexit being the most obvious recent example.

    Despite the huge number of works, popular and scholarly, produced on the subject a number of questions are still hotly debated. How important was the battle? When did it really start and end? Was the outcome the result of dogged British defence or did the Germans throw away a victory that was in their grasp by a series of catastrophic errors?

    In this talk, Rob Hewett will examine the last of these and argue that analysing the capabilities of the protagonists shows British actions prior to the summer of 1940 stacked the odds heavily in favour of the historical outcome.'

    "World War 2 in the Netherlands after Market Garden, 1944"

    Tuesday 11th May 2021 at 7.30pm

    [​IMG]
    Within the UK, the air drops on Arnhem, and the attempts to take the bridges by the Allies, in September 1944 are well known. However, there was considerable fighting following that ... in a sense, to widen the liberated zone to the West and East of Hell’s Highway.
    Our speaker is Dirk Paagman, who will connect with us from his home in the Netherlands. Dirk’s home town is Schijndel, and he has a major research project regarding the fighting in October 1944 to liberate the area. Dirk pays particular honour to the Highlanders who died in this fighting, and are buried in the local cemetery.

    To get access to the May-Jul 2021 talks there will be a one-off fee of £5.00 (which covers all talks, no matter how many you attend)

    Payment needs to be made BEFORE Mon 10th May 2021"
