TAMPA, Fla. -- The University of South Florida’s Department of Geography, Environment and Planning is sponsoring a lecture entitled “Atlantis Found? The Search for the Lost City.” The lecture, which will feature Richard Freund, Ph.D., of the University of Hartford, will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 29, 2012, in the Interdisciplinary Science Teaching & Research Facility (ISA) room 1061.

Freund, who is the director at the Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Hartford in Connecticut, also has authored two books, “Digging through History: Archeology & Religion from Atlantis to the Holocaust” and “Secrets of the Cave of Letters: Rediscovering a Dead Sea Mystery Digging Through the Bible.”

Philip Reeder, associate professor of environmental science and policy, will lead a discussion following the lecture. Reeder and Freund’s work to find Atlantis was documented by the National Geographic Channel. The documentary, “Finding Atlantis” aired in 2011.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
