As part of Bridge and Barrier, the Archaeozoology Laboratory at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa has several projects underway which provide opportunities for volunteers to work with staff in the Laboratory. These projects include the analysis of faunal remains, particularly fish and shellfish, from a range of sites in New Zealand, and also the preparation and measurement of modern comparative fish specimens and the measurement of archaeological fish bones.
