Shellfish Archaeology in B.C.
Monday, 25 February 201919:30 – 21:00
 
Fraser Bldg, Victoria, BC V8P 5C2, Canada
Description:MARINE NIGHT  


The intertidal zone is an exciting place, with many hardy creatures braving the crashing waves and hot sun to make homes in the rocky intertidal splash zone. Many shellfish make their home in the intertidal zone, from the spiky sea urchins and the fancy snails to the hardy clams and bright purple mussels. The food chains in the splash zone are complex and often involve birds and sea otters feasting on the creatures who make their homes there. Meaghan Efford is a graduate student working on shellfish archaeology in Barkley Sound, in particular looking at the dietary role of gooseneck barnacles to the First Nations people. 

We meet at 7:30 p.m. in Rm. 159 of the Fraser Building, UVic. Everyone welcome! Come early to socialize! Note: UVic parking is $3.
