Founded in 1980 to provide a meeting place for people interested in the southwest Florida area's archaeology, history and cultural past.

ZOOM PRESENTATIONS

We hope that you are finding the Zoom programing that is available on-line interesting. Between the Zoom presentations and the SWFAS Newsletter, you should have new and interesting monthly programs to watch and to read. Enjoy!

This month we have a YouTube video on the ancient Greek city of Ephesus in southern Turkey which I was able to visit many years ago. The ruins are stunning, and this former seaport city is now two or three kilometers inland as the harbor silted up. If you can’t go there in person, watch the video. In 41 B.C. Cleopatra had Marc Anthony order the assassination of her sister Arsinoe in the Temple of Artemis where she had been exiled by Rome.

Here is a list of this month's presentations by history and archaeology organizations around Florida. For those of you unfamiliar with how zoom works, you must register online to be able to connect and if you are unable make the actual presentation, it is usually recorded and you can see the program for up to a week later, as long as you have registered in advance. Try it out!
