How to Escape From a Volcano Eruption

If you had been in Pompeii in 79 AD, you might have tried to hunker down or escape by sea. This would be a mistake. But there is a way to safety.

Socrates comic making the rounds.
I got accepted into a virtual international art exhibit related to the pandemic we are going through and one of my artworks is about Greek Mythology and the Ferryman Charon. I apply to my art what I've learned while I was at UMass.

Join us south of the border in CT for the ClassConn Annual Meeting.
Road trip south?
Come to CT for a great pedagogical workshop!
Got inspired to figure out what a character in my book should look like. I chose to go with the likeness of Augustus.
Found this in the elib the other day and could actually read it!
Assassin's Creed Odyssey's representation of Thermopylae was much better than 300. Thought I'd share the footage. This game does get way too sci-fi-ish though, it's crazy. But this event being the first part of the game was really awesome. Oh and visiting Delphi was cool too among many other locations. Marathon...How could I forget Marathon. I stood there in the game just taking a moment of silence at the burial mound.
The Annual Meeting for ClassConn is soon. It's a great place to meet other classicists and network. We'd love to have you attend!
Registration information for the ClassConn Annual meeting is now online.
As fresh as ever!
