ANARKY Department Collections Tours

The Department of Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Calgary houses several archaeological and ethnographical museum collections in teaching/research laboratories, most of which has been collected by members of the department or through long-term loan from the Glenbow Museum in Calgary. Items in the collection include ceramics, lithics, faunal remains, and bioanthropology casts which originate from near and far. These collections are actively utilized for hands-on learning experiences in various courses and are the subjects of several honors theses and numerous on-going research projects.

All Chacmool Conference attendees are invited to participate in one of two organized tours of these collections with our Curatorial Technician.

1st Tour:  Wednesday, November 11 at 6:00 pm meeting in Earth Sciences 859 (during the conference welcome reception)

2nd Tour:  Friday, November 13 at 5:00 pm meeting in the Rozsa Centre in front of the registration tables.
