Archaeology Field Day

Over the last three months or so we’ve done a couple of articles where we’ve delved into the disciplines of paleontology and zoology. One was an article on dinosaurs that coincided with the release of Jurassic World in early June, while the other was tied to an exhibition on the evolutionary origins of pollination that’s still got a couple of weeks to run at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.

With both articles we talked to scientists who are on staff at the RSM and its affiliate facility the T-Rex Discovery Centre in Eastend. On Tuesday, Aug. 18 some of those scientists, plus a few others in areas such as archaeology and biology, will be on hand for this family-friendly event where people can learn more about the work that gets done at the RSM.

The field day runs from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesday, and admission is by donation. You can find out more by visiting the RSM website.
