it's so annoying... making all sorts of wild assumptions and presenting them as historical fact.

the body of a woman from Cleopatra's period had been found in Alexandria and because the shape of the tomb resembles the Pharos lighthouse, where Cleopatra's sister Arsinoe had had a victory, and because the body was of a woman who had had a luxurious lifestyle.....it must be Arsinoe. really? Didn't help that it was being fronted by the annoying Scots historian with the ponytail, sorry, forgotten the name.
