Zooarchaeology Laboratory Open House

12:00-4:30 PM Monday, October 14, 2013 (Columbus Day) at the Peabody Museum

Enjoy a behind-the-scenes visit to a major museum lab that helps archaeologists identify the animal bones found in their excavations. Are the bones from an ancient human occupation site or last year’s picnic? Researchers will demonstrate techniques using skeletons of modern animals. This is a favorite archaeology event for school-age children and homeschoolers.

Regular Museum admission rates apply.
