Misadventures in Archaeology: The Life and Career of Charles Conrad Abbott

January 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Quirky and Curmudgeonly C.C. Abbott – A Virtual Talk by Carolyn Dillian

Join us for a presentation by Carolyn Dillian, who along with Charles Bello, authored the recently published “Misadventures in Archaeology: The Life and Career of Charles Conrad Abbott”. According to the Penn Press website, “Through various sources including archival letters and diaries, this book provides the most complete picture of the quirky and curmudgeonly, C. C. Abbott.” If you’ve ever wondered about why this amateur archaeologist who seems best remembered for being “wrong” still captures the interest and imagination of many, you’ll want to attend.
