Pirates, history, and underwater/underground secrets keep the adventure alive. Linsey Hall will instruct her class on how we can use real life archaeology, the techniques, the equipment, the places, to enhance our novels. Whether you write historicals, romance or mystery, this is one lecture not to be missed.
