Headgear: The Natural History of Horns and Antlers

Through January 18, 2012

Discover how and why horns and antlers evolved through dramatic displays and video presentations illustrating their use in combat. Visitors are invited to touch specimens, compare their body height to the world's largest antlers, and explore horn-like structures in animals such as beetles and dinosaurs. Drawing from the collections of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology and Harvard's Semitic Museum, the exhibition will also display artifacts fashioned from the horns and antlers of hoofed animals around the world.
