Description

Experimental archaeology moves beyond the artifacts, allowing researchers to examine the underlying question of 'how' related to artifact finds. Papers in this session explore the 'how' behind three archaeological questions: How were manuscripts repaired; How did Viking Era Icelanders make iron; and How was leather hardened. Join us for a lively session exploring these experiments.
