Talk: Pharaohs at War (The New Kingdom)
The bold and the bloody. This is a lecture I gave at The University of Auckland, as an "Introduction to Egyptian Warfare in the New Kingdom." It covers basic points: weapons, organisation, vehicles, battles and strategies, and also larger concepts like state violence and imperialism - how the Pharaohs approached warfare itself. Also, I explore some major events that we have already discussed (e.g. the Battle of Megiddo, the Capture of Joppa), and some still to come (The Battle of Kadesh).
