Archaeology programs return to the Nature Lab

As the school year begins to draw to a close and summer vacations start to take shape, keep in mind the Nature Lab (located on the 3rd floor of the State Museum) has a full schedule of upcoming presentations for when Mother Nature throws a wrench in your outdoor plans, be it blistering heatwaves or the occasional monsoonal downpour.

Building on the success and positive feedback from last year’s inaugural Nature Lab Series, the staff of the Section of Archaeology will again host one-hour presentations on a variety of exciting topics from 11am – 12pm every Thursday through the end of July. To accommodate busy summer schedules, each program will be offered at least twice throughout the series. Find the topic that interests you the most, or attend them all!

A flint knapping demonstration and an introduction to the methods of cataloging and labeling archaeological collections kicked off our program offerings earlier this month, and we’ll continue with an in-depth look at the different design motifs on Native American pottery found in Pennsylvania as well as an overview of recent archaeological collections submitted to the museum from across the Commonwealth.
