“As we mentioned in Lesson #2, once hard and aggressive people in other places knew that kingship worked so well in Mesopotamia, they began to copy it. And so the ‘kingship from Eridu’ model began to spread all through the ancient Near East. But while all of them copied Mesopotamia, they weren’t entirely the same. The largest and most successful of these variations of Mesopotamian kingship occurred in Egypt. And there was a very strong reason for that: People living in Egypt had almost no way to leave.” (01/20/23)
