The Lighthouse of Alexandria: Part 2

In our last episode, we discussed the Lighthouse of Alexandria during its early years–the Ptolemaic and Roman eras. In this episode, we’ll take a look at its later history–during the Islamic era, which is where many of our most detailed descriptions–and fantastical legends about the lighthouse–date from.

The Lighthouse of Alexandria cast a long shadow. It’s the shadow of the Dark Pharos, which lives in all of us. Join us as we discuss the real and the fantastical, try to sort out which is which, and explore how the lighthouse finally died–and was brought back to life in modern times. Get the show notes here.
