Yorkie Pharaohs

Watched a programme on TV last night about ancient Egypt. It was presented by Professor Joann Fletcher, who speaks in a broad Yorkshire accent. She was having a conversation with some poor Egyptian farmer who still uses a wooden plough and oxen - not only did this guy understand English, but he didn't even need a translator for the Yorkshire accent. There might have been some intensive coaching going on off-screen though. If not, then hats off to him.


  1. He probably worked as a bus conductor
    in his younger life on Yorkshire buses.
