Fossil Prep Lab Experience

In a process broadly called “preparation,” fossils are carefully extracted from their encapsulating matrix. Depending on the type of fossil and the rock surrounding it, many different techniques are employed. In this hands-on tour of the HMNS Fossil Prep Lab, you can try your hand at various techniques paleontologists use to take fossils from excavation to exhibition.
