Adventure at the Archaeology Lab

MOMS Club® of Bismarck had a wonderful tour today of the Archaeology Lab at the Heritage Center! We discovered the faunal comparative collection, and the kids were able to hold a bison femur and turtle, wolf, and rodent skeletons. Then we looked at the material collection, where we checked out obsidian (volcanic glass), Knife River Flint, and viewed the projectile point collection. We also toured the archives, where over 12 million artifacts such as pottery, various knives, and other historic materials are stored and managed.
