History, Anthropology, Archaeology

Museums, Historic Objects and the Stories They Tell

How do the fields of History, Archaeology and Anthropology intersect? They don’t, but the artifacts and objects of a museum tell stories that span time (the chronology in history), location and setting (archaeology), and the impact on human culture (anthropology).

A free lecture presented by Sandy Lynch, adjunct curator of archaeology for Sharlot Hall Museum, will share how museums tell the stories of the past through the objects displayed, and how museums get these objects.

For 20-plus years. Dr. Lynch has been engaged at the Museum with collections and exhibits, and her Lecture Series presentation will describe museum management of collections, from care and handling to exhibition. She will discuss the process from provenance and protection, to presentation of historic and cultural artifacts.

The presentation will be Saturday, April 14, 2018 beginning at 2 p.m. in the West Gallery of the Museum.  Admission to the presentation is free, but space is limited.
