 Certain congruences between truncated hypergeometric polynomials and unit roots
of their associated motives appear to hold to higher powers of primes than expected.
We will discuss how this phenomenon, generally known as supercongruences, is tied
to Hodge theory and is more widespread than previously thought. This is joint work
with D. Roberts.
