    Zooarchaeology Lab Open House

    Presented by at Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology

    October 8, 2012


    Zooarchaeology Lab Open House

    Take a behind-the-scenes visit to a museum laboratory that helps archaeologists identify the animal bones found in their excavations. Researchers who study animal remains from ancient human-occupation sites (zooarchaeologists) demonstrate how this is done using skeletons of modern animals. If you have found a bone in your backyard, bring it with you and get it identified! A favorite archaeology event for children and for home-schoolers!

    Recommended for ages 8 and up accompanied by an adult.
