Depositional Hiatus

July 24, 2012

I realize that the posts here have been a bit sparse in the past month or so; in addition to the fieldwork mentioned in my last piece, we have also been a bit busy at the museum. Installation of our new mineral exhibit last week was all-consuming and occasionally hairy, but we are delighted with the results! If you are interested, you can see some images of the exhibit here.

New posts are in the works …

    That is a beautifully designed display case. The white and black are very effective together.
    The minerals are nice too!

      Hi Jodie, I am away from the Museum at the moment, but when I am back at the office I will send you an e-mail and maybe we can figure out how to identify your fossils.
