We’ve just taken delivery of our second teaching skeleton at Virtual Museum, in time to create a new archaeological activity for Archaeology for You on the 12th of July.
Although we already have one excellent disarticulated skeleton for osteological instruction in our Bones and Burials activity, we’ve now got one to practise digging and planning with.
Excavating and recording human burials is one of the most complicated and painstaking tasks archaeologists undertake in the field and we would like to explain how it is done.
So our new teaching skeleton will be pressed into service as the example for excavation, while our other skeleton will let us explain which bone is connected to which.
Come and give it a go at Archaeology for You.
