Video: Piecing Together Early Societies

Bill Parkinson studies 6500-year-old societies in eastern Europe.  How did those societies form?  How have they changed into the world we see today? How can anthropologists find out about them after all this time, with all the dirt, mud, and rocks in the way?  It seems to take a village--a multidisciplinary, long-term village of devoted researchers including Attila Gyucha and Rick Yerkes with the Koros Regional Archaeological Project.

Since its beginnings, the Field Museum has been devoted to the research of human cultures and the natural world, the recording of new scientific findings and the dissemination of knowledge. Inside the Museum, overlooking Stanley Field Hall, 4 maiden sculptures represent these ideas. Join Julie in this short stroll around the Museum and take a close look at these beautiful sculptures by Henry Hering.
