It may surprise you to learn Archaeology isnt just action-packed, "Indiana Jones" style excavations filled with marvelous discoveries. Archaeologists spend more time in the lab identifying and deciphering meaning from artifacts than they do in the field. Specifically, they focus on typology - the study and organization of things. September is Minnesota Archaeology Month and we welcome Dr. Jeremy Nienow for hands-on learning about the archaeological practice of grouping artifacts to inform discovery and historical meaning. You can also try your hand at drawing artifacts from our collections as part of your journey of discovery! |
Space is limited, please reserve your tickets in advance. $10; $8 for museum members.
Please note that visiting the museum at this time does require the use of stairs.
