About Ghosts in the Archaeology Record: Unearthing Spooks, Spirits, and Superstitions

Ghosts in the Archaeology Record: Unearthing Spooks, Spirits, and Superstitions

Make Reservations

We have all heard about mummy's curses and haunted objects, but have you ever wondered if modern day archaeologists ever excavate more than they bargained for? Historical archaeologist Chelsea Rose will present a spirited discussion about spooky cemeteries, haunted laundries, and that time archaeologists from Southern Oregon University accidentally unleashed an angry ghost on an unsuspecting family in Roseburg. Join us... if you dare.

About Old St. Francis History Pub

Old St. Francis History Pub

These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
