Professor Gerry Schaus, Waterloo University, will provide valuable insights into the home of the sixth-century BCE pre-Socratic philosophers, Thales, one of the Seven Sages of Greece, Anaximander and Anaximenes. Excavations by Ruhr-Universitat Bochum directed by Prof. von Graeve have provided much new information on the home of the so-called Natural Philosophers.
