Too Much Ramses…

So, these charming fellows have been taking up my time lately:

 

 

The old guy is Ramses II and the fierce soldiers are Hittites. I’m currently trying to write a 600 – 800 word essay on the Battle of Kadesh for an Ancient Civilizations class I’m taking.

While I love writing essays, this one is not coming easily to me. The Battle of Kadesh is a cloudy matter, at best. The accounts don’t line up and many of Ramses II’s claims are ridiculous in the extreme.  One man fighting off thousands of charioteers? Not likely.

Right about now, I think I need to take a break from the Ancients…
