On April 21 the Central Carolinas Society of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Department of Classics at Davidson College will celebrate the ancient Roman festival of Parilia in Davidson NC! This annual festival honored both the 'birthday' of the city Rome and Pales, an agricultural goddess.
Thanks to a grant from the Archaeological Institute of America, there will be an epic celebration of the Parilia. This celebration will include Roman rituals, fresco painting according to the ancient Roman methods, and good food.
