The students were asked to produce and deliver a presentation in response to a particular question about the ancient world: ‘if you could travel back in time to one day in the ancient past, which would it be and why?’ The ES AHS representative Mariam Jakhua decided to embark on a journey to Eleusis and to participate in the Eleusinian mysteries: “This phenomenon is well known around the world. Apart from being so well-known, it is also very well hidden. No one knows what happened during these mysteries, and due to that, it has become a controversial topic in many discussions. For this very reason, I wanted to go back. My main idea behind choosing this time and setting was to uncover all that is hidden and to abolish all misconceptions. I aimed to unravel the deep secrets and to enlighten my society about one of the world's most well-kept mysteries.
