ARE YOU GOOD AT DESCRIBING ROCKS?

Help Us Care for the Past–Our visitors are invited to try their hands at the exacting process of accessioning materials into the Tamástslikt collection. Over time Tamástslikt has amassed vast assets of lithic artifacts, ie arrowheads, blades, and stone tools. Some may be “just rocks”. A table has been set up in the gallery for visitors to help out the curatorial crew. Select an artifact, measure and document it in writing, and label it with an accession number. There is also a set-up for photographing the item. This will give you a taste of museum work that might open up new horizons. It will look good on your resume that you volunteered at Tamástslikt. As of March 25, this exhibit will be gone, so try it soon.

Pick a lithic, any lithic
