Every object humans create tells a story—about the maker, about the user, and about the place and time in which it was made.

Join Museum archaeologists Anna Semon, Thomas Blaber, and Abigail Musch as they talk about their work in the Nels Nelson North American Archaeology Laboratory and showcase artifacts from the collections. They will also share what objects reveal about us.

Join the watch party on Thursday, July 9 at 2 pm EDT. Or view on this page on the designated date and time.
