Courses begin tomorrow. Faculty and staff have been moving into the new Science Center on the SUNY Broome Campus.
This semester, Anthropology 113 – Intro to Biological Anthropology – will be having their laboratory sections in the new facility. This is very exciting!
We have some dedicated work and storage space, even, for Anthropology! Room 215, the Anthropology Storage Closet and tea station.
It may not look like much now, but for me, it’s a really big step towards having some great supplies to teach BCC’s lab courses in Bioanthropology and Archaeology in the way that they need to be. While I don’t want to provide a list on here for the hoards of potential scientific supply thieves out there, I can honestly say that the students at BCC will have a really good variety of lab equipment, decent skeletons of a wide range of age groups, field equipment, and other fun things!
As you can see, we have received some Bone Clone skulls. My favorite has to be the “Conquistador Skull with embedded axe.”
I am thinking of putting this on their test.
Question #30: What is the cause of death for this individual? Please be as specific as possible.
Have a great semester, everyone!
