Drop in to learn about archaeology with graduate students.

See how the ancient Inka of Peru (c. 1400–1532 CE) wrote with string. Join archaeologist Mack FitzPatrick in deciphering a khipu—a knotted string record-keeping system–through close examination of a working replica. (1:00–3:00 pm). Handle examples and ask questions. Look for the archaeologists in the third floor gallery.
