Presented by: Lynne McKee, Former FBI Art Theft Program Manager
Mummies, explosions, beheadings, bandits, sandstorms, wild dogs -
early archaeologists braved a host of Indian Jones-worthy adventures to explore
newly discovered sites during the 19th century. From Egyptian tombs to
the ancient cities of Troy and Petra and on to Machu Picchu, this presentation
will share stories of early archaeologists who visited these sites through
historic images and quotes from their personal field journals.
About the Speaker:Lynne McKee received a B.A. in Anthropology from UC Davis and a MA
degree in Museum Studies at San Francisco State University. She has been
involved with archaeological digs throughout California, as well as traveling
to the Middle East to study Egyptology. She has worked for a variety of
museums including the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural
History and Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's historic home in Virginia. She
also worked for eight years as the FBI's Art Theft Program Manager, and was involved
in numerous investigations recovering stolen antiquities.
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.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
