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 the 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!  Appointment is not required.

Free with Museum admission (Adults: $12, Seniors and Students with ID: $10, Children ages 3-18: $8)
