The National Museum of Natural History and Resources for the Future invite you to join NMNH archaeologist Melinda Zeder as she brings together genetics, animal sciences, and archaeology to trace the diverse and continuing pathways that humans and their animal partners traveled into domestication.
Learning how and when humans and animal first embarked on these journeys – and tracing the twists and turns they took along the way – is vital to understanding where we come from, how we arrived where we are today, and where these pathways will lead us into the future.
