The science of Archaeology

Saturday 16 March: 10:30am - 4:00pm

McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, Downing Street, CB2 3ER

Were Neanderthals fussy eaters? What can bones tell us about a person's life? How were these stone tools made? What happened to this animal after its death? What did ancient Mesopotamia smell like?

Science can help archaeologists answer these questions and many others. Discover the secrets revealed by pots, plants, soil, bones, textiles and maybe even fossilised poo!

A hands-on drop-in event for the whole family!
