Crimson White*: “UA’s historic mound steeped in symbolism”
“According to art history professor Robert Mellown, the University used to be peppered with similar sites where they piled up the remains of the torched buildings in 1887. ‘They left them as reminders of the horrible destruction of war,’ Mellown said. The inspiration goes back thousands of years, when Persia invaded Athens and burned the Greek Acropolis. As the story goes, the Greeks left the ruins in place as a symbol of oppression. UA, which focused on classical education, followed suit. ‘Persians had invaded Athens and burned the Acropolis, and now Yankees had invaded Alabama and burned the campus,’ Mellown explained.”
