Atlas Obscura Society DC's Explorers' Salon
What would it be like to work in a wetsuit searching for a World War II Stealth U-Boat or an aircraft carrier made of ice? How about traveling the world collecting enormous whale fossils to better understand their evolutionary past? Or using new analytical and research tools to find out who ancient Egyptian mummies really were? Join Atlas Obscura Society D.C. at DC9 for an evening of exploration and learning what life is like as an archaeologist and paleontologist.
