Special All Ages Event 

Enjoy a behind-the-scenes visit to a major museum lab that helps archaeologists identify excavated animal bones. 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 popular event for school-age children. If you have found a bone in your backyard, bring it with you and have it identified!

Regular museum admission rates apply. Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, 11 Divinity Avenue. Free event parking at 52 Oxford Street Garage.
