The latest series is now posted to the blog.

In this series, the Egyptians were given a ‘wake-up' call.

Wow, 3 – 0. The Egyptians didn't do well at all. Splendid battle reports and photos as always. Thanks very much for sharing. Hope to see the Amorite vs. Bedouin fight and the Egyptian – Libyan rematch.

After sweeping the Libyan and Ammu Bedouin off the field, the Egyptians developed a level of complacency. That was shattered beneath the blows of Amorite war axes.

Next report should be posted this Wednesday.

Nice report. Thanks.

The pine trees are a bit weird.

Maybe weird, but the Cedrus libani are indigenous to the eastern Mediterranean.

Perhaps Lebanon is a better description of the area than ‘modern day Palestine'.

Nice looking armies.

But the cedrus libani doesnt look like a christmas tree.

Hmm, interesting. I thought they were supposed to have been a lot more widespread back then, we'll into Syria and southern Turkey, back in the day, when there were still some elephants, lions and crocs left in ancient Palestine.

Two thumbs up for noting that.

I also remember there was an inscription about Old Assyrian monarchs going into Syria/Canaan to hunt for elephant ivory and they always came back with cedar beams for their palaces.

Maybe it was James B Prichard, Ancient Near Eastern Texts.
