Here at Peopling the Past we are excited to kick of an eerie series of posts in honour of Halloween! Every Friday through October we will release a new post explaining the history behind some of our most chilling Halloween traditions and scary stories. So grab your flashlight and your candy corn, and get ready for some scare-tacular history!
On this episode of the Peopling the Past Podcast, we are joined by Dr. Laura Gawlinski, Associate Professor in the Department of Classical Studies at Loyola University.
Follow along as she discusses the role of processions and festivals in the ancient Greek world, highlighting her own research on the so-called mysteries of Andania, a little-known festival in Messenia.
