Lololo. Same here. I am afraid unlike you I may be irredeemable, however. Maybe we can make the journey together.

Not so sure about that. Its not meant to depict an assembly line.

"Swallowed wholesale"? Do you think this is a fair statement? You should get Archaic Egypt by Emery. Very interesting.

AE beer making:
These are real by the way. They really liked to make models of these kinds of things, some are quite elaborate.

Probably so. I have never seen a vase that looks like the one depicted. Must just be a children's fairytale then.

Yet there it is.

We agree the AE made at least "some" of their own stoneware in their 3500+yr history. Like these (MK, 18th Dynasty):
How do you think the AE made all of the stuff not attributed to archaic Dynastic times? Do you think it was any different than what they do today which is eerily similar of what is depicted in AE reliefs?
