The Hyksos

Very early this morning I put up a post about this story on the use of radar technology at Tel al-Dabaa. I mistook that place for Dabaa, which is about 300km further east and the site of Egypt's future nuclear power plant, and so my post made no real sense and I took it down. In case you saw it, forget what you saw. If you didn't, good. And thanks M. for pointing out my error!
