PHILADELPHIA, PA.- This fall, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, in conjunction with Penn Arts and Sciences, launches the Center for the Analysis of Archaeological Materials (CAAM), housed in a newly renovated suite of conservation and teaching laboratories in the Museum’s West Wing.
The new Center will offer the facilities, materials, equipment, and expert personnel to teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students in a range of scientific techniques crucial to archaeologists and other scholars as they seek to interpret the past. Study will be arranged around eight disciplines: ceramics, digital archaeology, archaeobotany, archaeozoology, human skeletal analysis, lithics, archaeometallurgy, and conservation. Read more.

I know virtually nothing about either. Sorry. :S
Hi there! I feel like it comes down to whether you’re more into the social side or physical side I guess. Basically do you prefer your people when they’re living or when they’re dead?
I am personally into the paleo/physical side so I am into (really) old dead people.
My battery and pit scored high percussion in prelims. UGRY CRYINGGGGGGGG
1. I am still a full time music TA but now I am the director of our marimba band.
2. The marching band I tech for is having their first competition this weekend.
3. I decided to try getting a teaching certificate so I can teach middle school level science or math. Hopefully I’ll get into Wood Ring (WWUs teaching school) next fall.
Me and one of the 8th grade science teachers at my school are going to propose forming a “Dino Digs” club.
We decided that that the “Paleontology Club” wouldn’t really seem appealing to middle school kids.
I had this idea that at our first meeting we could have a bowl of cadbury eggs but in order to get one they must get past me dressed as an oviraptor protecting my nest. And in order to get past me they have to give me a fun dinosaur fact.
My supervising teacher said no.
