Skeletal Analysis Laboratory at the Pigorini National Museum of Ethnography and Prehistory
In the Spring of 2018, I interned in the skeletal analysis laboratory at the Pigorini National Museum of Ethnography and Prehistory. During this internship I learned how to analyze every element of the skeleton including gender, age, and any signs of disease. Each day I had a hands-on experience studying and collecting data on 2000-year-old skeletons to find out more about ancient cultures. I recorded my data in an archive for future researchers. I loved the lab environment and appreciate how much I learned. This experience has prepared me better for the world of archaeology.
