(SAD) Try to avoid "fake news" when that's essentially what their high school history books are

Ancient Egypt several times? I really hope that it was done properly. Once I started studying Egyptology I realized how much of what you learn in school and the public knowledge of ancient Egypt is bogus. They treat 3000 years of incredible history and diversity as if it were just another century. 3000 years! 3000 years ago Europe couldn’t even write.

Or you get the stories how the brits got those artifacts that are now in the British museum. “Yeah we bought them!” The part that is conveniently omitted is that you also ruined the country for more than a century and basically were huge culturebarbarians. And if you per se have to rob those countries of their artifacts... please record where u got it so that we can at least lean something from it.
