Zooarchaeology Laboratory Open House
Sponsored by Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, Harvard University
Monday, October 9, 2017 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm

Location:

Free with regular museum admission (Adults: $12, Seniors: $10, Youth: $8)
Visit behind the scenes of a museum laboratory that helps archaeologists identify the animal bones found on their excavations. Researchers who study animal remains from ancient human-occupation sites (zooarchaeologists) demonstrate how this is done by using skeletons of modern animals. If you have found a bone in your backyard, bring it in with you and get it identified! A favorite archaeology event for children and for home-schoolers!
