A study published in the (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352409X18306849#!) Journal of Archeological Science
revealed that an intact fang of rattlesnake was recovered from a coprolite that was excavated in the late 1960s but left unstudied until now.
Ruth Shahack-Gross of the Kimmel Center for Archeological Science
at the Weizmann Institute has been involved in this archaeological research since excavations began, and she collects samples on-site for later detailed analysis in the lab.
The essays are less about archeological science
than bringing together the concerns of aesthetics and the art of excavation and curatorial presentation.
Metaphysics is, in short, an archeological science
in a double sense.
