TREASURE

August 12, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$15

Odd Salon TREASURE

From Aladdin’s cave of wonders to the gold in the California hills, the quest for el Dorado to daring midnight heists, hidden riches has been the driving force behind epic exploration and private obsession, the inspiration for ancient fable, pirate adventure, and James Bond novella alike.

Join us for an evening celebrating filthy lucre, in all its many splendored forms from famous caches and missing riches, to the sharks, laser beams, and real-life ancient booby traps designed to keep them exactly where they hide.

Featuring:

Steen Comer ~ Nazi Treasure and the LAKE OF DEATH
AJ Anderson ~ Traps! Booby and Death: A Look at Security Through the Ages
Seana Miracle ~ The Treasure of Santa Catalina Island
Ryan Galiotto ~ “We’re Going to Need a Bigger Boat” – Admiral Zheng He & the Chinese Treasure Fleet
Arthur Kay ~ The Queen, the Craftsman, the Killer & the Thief
Norman Eisely ~ The Vagabond Thieves; How a Frenchman and an Englishman stole the true meaning of One Thousand and One Nights
