Science At Play: Artifact Rubbings

When archaeologists doing fieldwork discover a large artifact that is important to decoding a culture’s way of life, they often take images of carvings or other elaborate details to study until the object can be excavated and transported to research labs. However, instead of taking a picture with a camera, they often create a rubbing …
