Mitigating Unwelcome Bugs and Dust, but Preserving Petrified Puke

When exploring the hallowed halls of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, guests might expect to find themselves enraptured by dinosaur skeletons, mesmerized by walls of butterfly and beetle displays, or have their breath taken away by award-winning nature photography. But, as a conservation intern, I focused my personal queries on the “yucky” stuff – unwelcome creepy crawlies, dust bunnies, and the powdery remains of historical vomit!

Clamshells and Catalogs: Preservation and Organization of the Carnegie Library

Archaeologists by trade are multi-disciplinary. Digging in the hot, dusty field in a foreign country and the lab of a world-renowned museum are both familiar aspects of work for an archaeologist. Early within my career, I’ve had the great privilege of working hands-on with remarkable objects, from identifying bones among co-mingled ossuary remains to restoring arrowheads and stone tools in a conservation lab.

The Duality of War

There are always two sides to any conflict in life. In my time studying History at Pitt, I’ve narrowed the focus of my studies on learning the untold narrative, the stories that are often left out of general history textbooks. As I began my internship at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, the complexity of historical events like war and their human dimensions began to stick out for me.  Most of my work in the museum was done in collections and archives.
