Film Description:In the Penn Museum’s new series Dig In! we follow our host, Tom Stanley, as he discovers strange archeological facts and quirky stories from the Museum.

Today’s episode is all about SHERDS! Resident Sherd Nerd, Dr. Megan Kassbaum, tells us what they are and why they matter, including some fun sherd facts you can use to impress your friends (or your professors!). Plus, you’ll learn a peculiar trick to tell the difference between sherds, rocks, and animal bones. Also - wine!

After this, you’ll never look at sherds the same.
