Ancient Discoveries

On the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, the Grain Mother, news of an archaeological discovery has hit the news:

In Sicily, a Temple of Demeter was found, along with artifacts from the temple! They found fragments of vases depicting offerings to Demeter and a flute made of bone. I'm very excited about the flute. I'm also excited that this particular search was led by someone from New York University. Aside from the university being my alma mater, they have a wonderful archaeology school and have presentations and lectures and curated shows. Here are some of their past offerings. Check out the programs at your local college or university- you might be surprised by what they offer to the public.
