All quiet on the College Green

If you somehow missed Tuesday’s epic Battle of Kush…ahem Kadesh… on the Quiet Green, don’t worry, there was plenty of media coverage.

In the video below, check out the Hittite’s thwarted efforts to defeat Ramses II and the Egyptians, replete with cardboard shields and plywood chariots. That’s right. Egyptology, bitches.

And if that wasn’t enough, here’s a slideshow to top off the multimedia frenzy. Swing low, sweet chariot…

    The Kush joke is made much better by the fact that helping the Egyptians were a group of Nubian mercenaries. From Nubia, you know, the Kingdom of Kush.

    Isn’t it nice when things just work?
