Paestum, unveiled the secret of Athena’s goddess temple

La scoperta di un gruppo di ricerca dell'Università di Colgate (Usa): la collinetta su cui sorge il santuario dedicato alla dea della guerra è in parte artificiale

Il tempio di Athena a Paestum

What’s new about the goddess Athena at Paestum: suggest the first results of the georadar and geomagnetic surveying and exploration campaign conducted by a research group directed by Prof. Rebecca Miller Ammermann of the University of Colgate (USA), in collaboration with University of Bologna. According to scholars, who have “radiographed” the ground around the Athena Temple, the small hillock on which the Doric building dedicated to the goddess of war and crafts is, is partly artificial.
