Find out what archaeologists owe to natural science in this hands on event exploring Linnaean systems of classifying life forms and the archaeologist Flinders Petrie’s sequence of pots. Try your hand at seeing patterns that link species and pot type together in giant puzzles. Then, if you want, disrupt the systems with Foucault.
