Egyptology and Broadcast Fiction

A short story, "Visit to the Underworld" by novelist Stevie Davies, was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 over the weekend. It revolves around the Tomb of Tutankhamun.
Fleeing her home and its reminders, Rhiannon has come to Egypt. Standing outside Tutankhamun's tomb, she hears a Welsh voice and thinks she sees her dead son in a backpacker's eyes.
The 15 minute broadcast can be heard with the listen-again facility.
