Items range from arrowheads to blades to bones that span a history of several hundred years of history. Members of the Digital Scholarship Collaborative (DiSC) team are working closely with members of the Research & Instructional Design (R&ID) team as well as students in Assistant Professor of Anthropology Colin Quinn's ARCH 245 Human Ancestors class to develop systematic ways of recording metadata to build a database that allows members of the Hamilton Community and beyond to explore and learn from the collection.
