Os par ci, os par là: dans la peau d'un archéozoologue

Guided tour of the exhibition 40 years of archaeozoology.

Philippe Wagneur

Come and discover the exhibition 40 years of archaeozoology through a guided tour by Jean-Christophe Castel, archaeozoologist at the Natural History Museum of Geneva and Mila Musy, museologist and co-organizer of the exhibition.

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the archaeozoology laboratory of the Museum, this small exhibition proposes to explain the purpose of this discipline which is part of archaeology but focuses on animals, their bones and what humans have done with them. Thanks to relics that are sometimes several millennia old, we will be able to discover how our ancestors ate, dressed, what their economic motivations were and in what environments they lived.
