This week, the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History reopened inside the Biological Sciences Building across the way from the old Ruthven Museum and Alaska's history was on display! Senna Catenacci's hard work in the lab over the past year culminated in a poster she presented at the SAAs (see below) and a small exhibit focusing on finds from the Delta Creek Site associated with tool production.
The exhibit, entitled "Stone Cold Science" features formal tools and production debris from Delta Creek's early Holocene component. Senna walks the viewer through artifacts that I excavated along with a team of CEMML researchers last summer. It was so amazing to see the hard work of so many, especially Senna, on display in this beautiful new space!
