Here's a chance to hear ancient Egyptian read aloud: The Tale of Sinuhe read dramatically by Orlando Mezzabotta. Click here.
The Tale of Sinuhe, one of the finest literary works of ancient Egypt, has often been of interest to biblical scholars because of parallel themes with biblical texts and because of descriptions of Canaan in the tale. It is set in the aftermath of the death of Pharaho Amenemhat I in the early 20th century BCE. The tale may have been composed only shortly after the time of this narrative setting, althought the earliest manuscript of the tale that we have is from ca. 1800 BCE.
