Anthropology Students Digging Cool Things and Making Fire

Students digging up skeletons of New England mammals in Belchertown State Forest (Massachusetts) in late August of this year. These skeletons have been accessioned into the collections in Prof. DeSilva's laboratory thanks to the work of these students. They are: Ellie McNutt, Cindy Ramirez, Jessica Kittelberger, and Sarah Miller. In the foreground are skeletons of bobcats and coyotes. 

 

The Anthropology 70 class having an x-hour fire at the organic farm last night. In order to teach about the importance of fire in human evolution, they made a fire. Simple enough, but fun and an important bonding experience as they were preparing for their trip to South Africa over the winterim.
