Monthly Archive: December Prog
As part of Archaeology Weekend on April 14 and 15 we will be putting on a small display of objects from out of the ROM’s vaults. We are calling it Treasures of the Danube: Enigmatic Objects from Balkan Prehistory.
I can’t wait for Archaeology Weekend (April 14 – 15). It’s REALLY going to be special. BUT! Before we get there, let me tell you a story!
On Saturday, March 31, the Young Patrons’ Circle (YPC) hosted the seventh annual PROM at the ROM fundraising bash. This year’s creative circus theme was a three-ring success – and a record-breaking PROM with over 900 guests in attendance!
Hundreds of big top beauties and carnival cuties danced the night away, indulged in delicious treats and enjoyed a midway packed with fun-fair activities and live entertainment.
Dr. Anthony Aveni uses what we have learned about the Maya calendar and what we know about astronomy to debunk irrational predictions about the year 2012
The question above was asked of Colgate University professor Dr. Anthony Aveni, one of the pioneers in the field of archaeoastronomy (the study of the astronomy and related beliefs of ancient cultures), when he was talking to a Maya friend in the course of his research.
On a chilly February evening, Dr. David Stuart of the University of Texas at Austin shared his enthusiasm for the Maya site of Palenque, and took the ROM audience to a very different time and place.
This morning, the ROM’s Maya High Priest hopped on the GO-Train giving commuters a surprise welcome with their morning coffees. Promoting the final days of Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World before it closes on April 9, 2012, this was a fun event for everyone (and a chilly one for the our High Priest)!
Last stop...Union Station!
