Greg Van Antwerp will talk about his passionate second “career”. For the past 35 years Greg has been digging for historical treasure through every estate, garage and tag sale he could find. He will be sharing some of his discoveries and search techniques with us.
In 2009, Greg began blogging about his discoveries by creating the Confessions of an Urban Archeologist. There he presents hundreds of posts with photos, videos, and stories documenting the “best of” what he has discovered in his journeys. He also writes a weekly column for Patch titled “The Urban Archeologist” that is published in an average of 15 Patch towns each week. Greg’s professional life has been spent working in community television for over 20 years.
During his treasure hunts Greg is known to travel with his favorite companion/assistant – his daughter by his side.
