I always wondered how Cleopatra's Needle got to Great Britain.

All 3 chapters are PL OK! :clap:
I really enjoy this book! The writer has a very epic (and as a consequence - a bit funny) style, especially when he talks about archaeologists, and your voice, Steven, suits the book perfectly!

Odd that Masters places the Labyrinth at Thebes. I had thought it on Crete.

I also skipped a little and listened to chapter 15. :)
Before I declare this chapter PL OK, I have a question to our MC. As there is section 16, readers notes, would it be more appropriate to put "End of the book" disclaimer after section 15 or only at the very end, after section 16? I am not sure. Technically the text of the book ends with ch 15, but still - there is that one more file, so it is not end after all...? I am confused here.

We put “end of book” at the end of the last recording to let the Listener know there is nothing more to listen to.

Thanks, David!
So the "End of the book" disclaimer must be removed from section 15. Otherwise it is OK.
