The Parthenon in a Pickup
The department recently inherited a cardboard model of the Parthenon which was made for our children's school play, Happy Birthday Zeus. Dr. Thomas kindly provided his pick up truck and his labor, while Dr. Strobel's husband (and incoming English Department Chair) Professor Paul Bone assisted in the transition of the temple from Washington Ave to Lincoln Ave. Alas, no Panathenaic procession was held. Little Zeus (aka Wyatt Bone) also helped. Dr. Strobel plans to use the model in her art history survey class this fall. Notice that the Parthenon is currently being stored in the new Archaeology Lab in the basement of Hyde. Many thanks to Dr. Kaiser for letting it stay there for a bit and thanks to Dr. Ebeling for logistical assistance.
