Tossing a coin into a fountain for luck is a tradition with roots in the ancient world. Throughout European prehistory, people visited different types of watery places, such as bogs, rivers, and springs, to deposit a variety of objects, not just coins, as offerings to their gods. Focusing on a series of springs in the Burgundy region of modern day France, we will explore the offerings deposited there by Iron Age and Gallo-Roman Period inhabitants and the impact the Roman conquest had on indigenous ritual practices in ancient Gaul.

The Pnyx site in Athens is of enormous historical importance; it is widely regarded as the birthplace of democracy, but despite decades of intensive study, many fundamental features of the site remain in dispute. How many audience members could attend meetings and what would it feel like to speak to 6,000 audience members (a quorum) or more? What demands does the structure itself make on the speaker to be seen, heard, and understood, and on auditors to see, hear, and understand?
