This Friday, 2nd October 2015 at 7.30pm, Dorset County Museum is hosting a fascinating talk which will reveal what ancient animal bones can tell us about people’s lives in prehistoric Dorset.
Dr. Clare Randall, an osteoarchaeologist with a particular interest in pastoral farming and land use during prehistory, said “Sometimes we assume that animal bones only tell us what people ate, but in fact they speak to us of so much more. Combined with other humble things such as fields and ditches, we can learn much more about people’s lives than we could have possibly imagined.”
This talk will explore the changing ways in which people in the Bronze Age and Iron Age organised everyday tasks, leaving behind them some of the largest scale archaeology we have.
The talk is on Friday 2nd October 2015, Dorset County Museum, 7.30pm (doors open at 7.00pm). The talk is free of charge but a donation of £3.00 is encouraged to cover costs.
