Costello digs Cyprus

Barry McNamara
Benjamin Costello, visiting assistant professor of classics at Monmouth College, will present an International Luncheon talk on Nov. 17 at noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of the college’s Stockdale Center.

Titled “Archaeological Highlights of Southwestern Cyprus,” Costello’s talk will explore the rich and diverse archaeological landscape of the small island nation, which sat at the crossroads of the ancient world. He will highlight several sites, including Kourian and the Akrotiri peninsula.

A buffet lunch, featuring international foods, is available. A meal ticket may be purchased for $7.25 in the food service office in Stockdale Center. Lunch reservations must be made in advance by calling 309-457-2149, but anyone may attend the presentation without obligation to purchase the meal.
