10:00 am

Jim Watson in the Field

Jim Watson, Associate Curator of Bioarchaeology and Nicole Mathwich, Zooarchaeology Curatorial Assistant, will host an engaging two-hour combination seminar and lab experience on methods and what we can learn from human and animal remains recovered from archaeological contexts.  Participants will learn some hands-on anatomy basics with favorite desert animals, how bones are deposited, found, and recovered from archaeological sites, and how the sub-disciplines of bioarchaeology and zooarchaeology can contribute to answering archaeological research questions.

 

Registration is limited to 12 people. To register contact Katherine Cerino.
