Mystery Stone Uncovered at Old (First Parish) Meeting House

The mystery slab could date to the 18th century when the meeting house was built in 1755 and redeposited there when the meeting house was renovated in 1840.


Archeologist Michael Danti, of Groton, [above left] quickly determined that the inscription on the slab is Latin but is still unclear on the meaning. Working with him is a professor who specializes in old church Latin. They temporarily suspended their work on restoring Mosques and churches in Mosul, Iraq to focus on Groton’s link to the past.
