PROGRAM: Archeology for Writers

What do Indiana Jones and The DaVinci code have in common? They’re romps through history that caught our attention, took us on a thrill ride, and left an indelible impression in our memory. Add Pirates of the Caribbean with underwater secrets and you have a formula for adventure waiting to explode on the page.
Linsey Hall doesn’t carry a whip like Professor Jones or a Tricorn like Captain Sparrow, but she knows adventure - real adventure - and will be lecturing on the elements of real archaeology (techniques, equipment, places, ship construction). She will cover everything needed to enhance your novel and whether you write historicals, romance, paranormal, or mystery… this is one lecture not to be missed.
