As part of the Southern Nevada Archeology Speaker Series sponsored by the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership Cultural Resources Team, UNLV PhD student Virginia Lucas will speak at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas on November 10th at 2 pm.

Come learn how to tell the difference between human and non-human bone. Learn how to identify different types of animals from bone while learning human bone anatomy. Take a bone quiz to see how much you have learned, and if you feel up to it, try your hand at identifying fragments of bones.

Ms. Lucas is a PhD student at UNLV, specializing in skeletal remains from archaeological sites. Her skill set has allowed her to work on a number of sites in the United States as well as Romania. Currently, her research focus is on the animal remains found in archaeological sites in Southern Nevada.

This program is open to the public and free with museum membership or paid general admission to the Springs Preserve.
