The Dickinson Chimaera Club

Classics, Archaeology & All Things Ancient

If it's old, we're intrigued, if it's dead, captivated!

Events and Acitivies: 2008-2009

On January 10th, 2009, Dickinson College's Chimaera Club participated in the 9th Annual Archaeology Fair hosted by the Archaeological Institute of America. The fair was held in Philadelphia, PA, and gave hundreds of local families a chance to learn about ancient life through fun and games. The Chimaera Club's booth was called "Minoan Seals and Roman Wreaths of Glory" and the children got to try making both the seals and wreaths themselves. The Dickinson students who ran the table for the afternoon included: Diane Evitts, Elizabeth Parker, Kristin Fanciullacci, Laura Takakjy, Brendan Boston, and Camille Sogin. (link to photos)
