New blog alert Pompilos

Welcome to Pompilos. The purpose of this site is to spread the book titled The Nautical Origin of Greek Architecture and Sculpture, which is still in progress. The main thesis of the book, the nautical hypothesis, argues that the Greek temple, and Greek public buildings in general, originated from boats stored and turned over upon supports, with the space under them being used to bivouac, to meet, to banquet and to store gear and commercial products.

We have no idea if this idea has any merit whatsoever, it being far off from our area of even general expertise. So give it a visit and see what you think.
