Archaeology and Classics student Megan Reaser completed an internship at the Pigorini Museum in Rome.
From the months of September to November I interned in the physical anthropology laboratory in the Pigorini Museum. I got to work with Neolithic skeletal remains that were excavated in Northern Italy and sent down to the museum to be cleaned and analyzed. During this internship I learned about human anatomy using a hands-on approach. During the time I spent in the lab, I cleaned, sorted, analyzed, and reconstructed the skeletal remains by organizing them anatomically. I would recommend this internship opportunity for anyone who is interested in archaeology or anthropology. It truly was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
