Event description
DC9 welcomes Atlas Obscura Society DC

About this Event

Doors: 7:30pm

Show: 8:00pm

What would it be like to work in a wetsuit searching for a World War II Stealth U-Boat or a frozen, sunken aircraft carrier? 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 archaeologists and paleontologists.

Dr. Nick Pyenson, the Curator of Fossil Marine Mammals at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum and author of Spying on Whales.

Sanchita Balachandran, Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Near East Studies.
