In this episode, I pose a controversial question that I constantly see online to Dr. Louise Hitchcock and that is "did ancient Egypt provide the foundation of Minoan Civilization?"
She points out this theory derives primarily from Black Athena and that Bernal believed that the ancient Egyptians conquered Crete and how and why he was wrong.
She goes on to say that there was contact and influence between ancient Egypt and the Minoans but that they were in fact different peoples and cultures who interacted with each other.
