Author, Speaker, Unintended Adventurer

As a historian and global archaeology professional, Patty Civalleri has traveled for 17 years to the deepest corners of our ancient past in search of lost civilizations all over our planet. She has had the privilege of doing so with some of the foremost archaeologists and scientists in the world.

She presents the world with the same intellectual excitement that has driven her through lost caves, ancient tombs, and historical personalities that have been lost to time.

She enjoys the honor of serving on the Director's Council of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA), and on the Board of the Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies at California State University in Long Beach (CSULB), and as the 2018 Commodore of the Alamitos Bay Chargers boating club in Long Beach, Ca.

As a writer, photographer, graphic designer, and technology professional, Patty has had the pleasure of building websites, photographing, marketing and writing for over 200 commercial business clients around the country covering a 20-year period.

This deep experience of bringing compelling commercial content to life enabled her to create visually engaging travel books to the world. This unique approach has won her the prestigious IRWIN AWARD for the BEST INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR for 2017.

Civalleri is an avid cook, sailor, singer and classical pianist residing in Long Beach, California.
