SRA Archaeology Center Tour – October 31

We  have  a  wonderful  opportunity  this  month.    We  have  been  invited  by  Dr.  Lynn  Swartz  Dodd  to  tour  the  USC  Archaeology  Research  Center,  located  on  campus  in  Ahmanson  Hall  (popularly   known  as  the  “cheese  grater”  building).

The  USC  Archaeology  Research  Center  lets  visitors  get  their  hands  on  the  past.  Virtual  reality   displays  sit  next  to  ancient  artifacts  that  you  can  hold  (we’ll  provide  the  gloves!).  USC  Dornsife   College  of  Letters,  Arts  and  Sciences  offers  undergraduates  an  archaeology  major  and  minor   that  combines  innovative  science,  hands-­‐on  activities,  exploration  of  ancient  places  near  and   far  and  problem  solving  through  cutting-­‐edge  research.  See  what  the  past  can  teach  us  about our  future  and  ourselves.

Dr.  Dodd  is  a  world-­‐renowned  archaeologist.  Among  many  achievements,  she  takes  students   into  the  exciting  world  of  underwater  archaeology.    See  this  video:  https://dornsife.usc.edu/arch
