Paleo Picnic

Each year the department hosts the Paleo picnic in conjunction with Dr. Martha Tappen’s Skeletal Materials for Archaeologists course. The picnic is a chance for students interested in Paleolithic lifeways to experience, first hand, animal butchery with stone tools much the way our Paleolithic ancestors did. After butchery, the meat is cooked and shared amongst the participants and the animal bones cleaned and incorporated into the department’s zooarchaeological teaching collection.
