Description

Drop in to learn about archaeology with graduate students. Join archaeologist Jack Bishop and examine ancient stone tools for a glimpse into the early domestication of animals and the rise of agriculture in the Middle East (11 a.m.–1 p.m.). See how the ancient Inka of Peru (c. 1400–1532 CE) wrote with string. Join archaeologist Mack FitzPatrick in deciphering a khipu—a knotted string record-keeping system—through close examination of a working replica (1–3 p.m.). Handle examples and ask questions. Look for the archaeologists in the third floor gallery. 


Free with regular museum admission. 


Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology and Harvard Museums of Science & Culture.
