Archeological Find

Found this article a moment ago over on MSNBC.

I am buy no means an expert in ancient societies. It did however catch my eye, given the subjects connection to the origins of Western Theatre.

Boggles the mind a bit to think that the sort of things I do, and will be doing in this current play, had their very rough beginnings in such places as that. In some small way all actors these days owe thanks to the ancient Greeks, and structures like the one uncovered today, for their very craft.

On a side note, it must be a colossal pain in the ass to be a contractor in Greece. You can't so much as put up a telephone poll without the risk of damaging some obscure long hidden relic that just so happened to contribute to the formation of modern civilization.
