Category: Fun Finds

What is more fun than finding a join? Maybe that pink sparkly watch.... but seriously, the activity "Conservation Station", part of the outreach for Nashville Parthenon's The Antikythera Mechanism exhibition, was extremely popular! Local youth were tasked with finding joins and using removable tape to reconstruct pottery-- and would not stop until the work was complete.
