Archaeology isn't all snakes and treasure troves, but Nicholas Hudson has stories—real stories—about Egyptian archaeology that rival Indiana Jones. During his two seasons on digs in Tell Timai, Egypt, Hudson and his team uncovered 1,000 pounds of pottery, spanning more than 1,000 years. Hudson will present these stories—from one city’s ancient perfume industry to a household’s unfortunate place on the wrong side of history—bringing these broken pots to life. Sat 2 p.m.
