Archaeology Campers Visit the MAC Lab


Recently, 14 campers from JPPM’s archaeology summer camp visited the MAC Lab for a week of fun activities. They toured the collections department and washed artifacts on Monday, participated in a “table top” excavation on Tuesday, on Wednesday they toured the conservation labs where staff x-rayed toys that the campers had brought from home, and on Thursday they learned about electrolytic reduction and “science with stink bombs”. And that doesn’t include the time they spent excavating in the field! We were very happy to reveal the “lab side” of archaeology to such a great bunch of kids.
