New 'displays' at Prehistoric Museum - humans at work

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Fossil preparators Jim Huffaker (foreground, above) and Joe Giddes work patiently on bones for study and display at the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum. In the past, such work was conducted out of public view in the bone lab on the Price campus, but now some prep work has become an integral part of the museum exhibits. Archaeology and paleontology preparation and curation can now be viewed through two windows near the dinosaur pit on the first floor. The windows slide, so visitors can talk to the preparators as they work. "It is our desire to have our patrons talk to the preparators in the labs to make their educational and museum experience one to one," museum director Kenneth Carpenter said. He added, "This is an addition that the museum has long needed."
