CAAM takes over the Artifact Lab (for a day)

Update – this post contains blurred images of human remains. To read more about this decision, follow this link.

If you visit the Artifact Lab tomorrow (Tuesday August 22) during our open window sessions, you’ll be in for a treat. Instead of speaking with one of us (the conservators) you’ll have the opportunity to chat with two of our CAAM* teaching specialists, Dr. Kate Moore, Mainwaring Teaching Specialist for Zooarchaeology, and Dr. Marie-Claude Boileau, Teaching Specialist for Ceramics. We frequently consult and collaborate with them, but this will be their first time working behind the glass walls of the Artifact lab for our open window sessions.

They look ready for anything, don’t they? Don’t miss this unique opportunity (between 11:00-11:30am and 1:30-2:00pm) to ask them questions and talk to them about their work and research!

*CAAM, which stands for The Center for the Analysis of Archaeological Materials, is a joint endeavor between the Penn Museum and the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Arts and Sciences (SAS)
