Gold Coast Archaeological Dig
Have you always wanted to participate in an archaeological dig, but traveling to Syria was just too far? Stay in Chicago and experience some of the excitement Agatha Christie felt while traveling with her archaeologist husband, Max Mallowan (no murders, but maybe some bones). Take a walking tour of unusual Gold Coast sites (and the old City Cemetery). Visit the excavation of the Potter Palmer Castle's disposal site, under the direction of Rebecca Graff and her crew from the University of Chicago. The walking tour takes place on June 30 from 10 Am to Noon.
For reservations contact Sally Kalmbach, Chicago Historian and author of The Jewel of the Gold Coast: Mrs. Potter Palmer's Chicago
