Hannah:

An investigation of that really famous “Minoan” artifact referred to as the snake goddess that was brought to modern western renown by explorer and early archaeologist Arthur Evans who is well known for excavating on Crete and study of the ancient Minoan civilization. The book sheds light on how much of what those of us outside of academia know about this ancient civilization and the artifacts discovered early on are unfortunately misleading, highly doctored, highly romanticized, and may in fact be deliberate falsehoods. I’ve seen many of these representations used a lot in modern pagan literature, statues, jewelry…all over and most of us have no idea how badly the archaeology was botched and that basically it fed an upper class, western plundering of ancient artifacts in that part of the word. Priceless pieces stolen out of there context, sold to the highest bidder and then doctored up heavily before presented in museums. This is one of those books that if you are a modern pagan who is interested in archaeology and ancient civilizations…i highly recommend it.

Stormy:

The Owl House

My recommendation is to go watch the animated series called Owl House! It’s about an eccentric girl who was supposed to be sent to a summer camp for learning ‘normal’ and ‘ordinary’ things, but instead gets transported to a world full of magic and monsters! She meets a witch who becomes her mentor, and tons of wacky adventures ensue. 

I love it because it actually shows a Latina female lead, is inclusive to the gay community, and has a lot of really nice lessons in it. Plus the animation is just *chefs kiss*. Eda the owl lady is my favorite, though Hooty isn’t far behind. I highly recommend the show, and you can find it on Disney plus!
