The Appleton Museum of Art will for the first time ever exhibit treasured artifacts discovered in Florida from one of Spain’s earliest Royal expeditions to the New World.  This never before seen collection of rare 16th century artifacts includes beautiful Murano glass fabricated in Italy during the early 1500s as well as the largest cache of medieval coins found in the American mainland so far.   The collection contains very rare King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella related coins and Spanish armor items recovered on an excavation led by Dr. Ashley White, a Trustee of the Archaeological Institute of America.  These lost archaeological treasures are from Conquistador Hernando de Soto’s famous 1539 expedition to the New World.  The exhibition will be held in correlation with Florida’s 500th Anniversary Celebration which commemorates Florida’s rich heritage and diverse cultural history through 2013.

From the Mundane to the Divine: Pompeiian Graffiti and Augury Fortunes for Archaeology Day

Sponsored by Eta Sigma Phi, University of Florida

AIA Society Event: Gainesville

Wednesday, October 17, 2012 - 3:00pm - 5:30pm

Location:
University of Florida
Reitz Union Colonnade
Gainesville, FL 32611
United States

The citizens of Pompeii immortalized sometimes mundane but fascinating details of their lives in the graffiti they left behind. We will encourage passersby to view books and other handouts on graffiti at Pompeii and then record their own graffiti on a provided sheet of cardboard or poster paper. This graffiti will be inspired by the graffiti found at Pompeii, yet will be about the authors' lives and experiences at the University of Florida. Participants will learn about the graffiti left behind at Pompeii and engage in the same deliberations as the ancient citizens of Pompeii in deciding what details of their lives to record and leave behind for an imagined posterity.

In addition, we will have a station to conduct pseudo-augury sessions, where participants' fortunes will be read from the "entrails" from a "bird," in this case individually-wrapped candies and a backpack, respectively. Augury was used as a reliable means of guiding one's life and make crucial decisions, much like the horoscopes of today. We hope participants will enjoy experiencing ancient divination practices and will connect them to modern times.
