Circles Magazine had the opportunity to explore two large museums, The Nevada State Museum, and The Las Vegas Natural History Museum. Both of these sites allowed the group to see firsthand how some different civilizations lived, and how the first people built and settled in the state Nevada.
Las Vegas Natural History Museum
When you enter the Museum, you are greeted by a massive sign.
This is a ceremonial mask that people from Africa would wear. What a huge mask to wear!
The face of this statue shows how Egyptian pharaohs looked. Fashion has changed since the time of the pharaohs!
Egyptian Gods were believed of having the head of an animal and the body of a human! The combination looks awkward.
An ancient kitchen had no dishwashers, stoves, or microwaves. What you see is what you get!
The two jars contained the remains of pharaohs.
These necklaces were worn by men and women alike. The only catch…they had to be rich; very, very, rich.
Nevada State Museum
The first thing someone notices when entering the museum is the Nevada State Tree. It was massive!
The mammoth is from the ice age
Since early civilizations didn’t have plastic containers and tin foil, Native American’s resorted to natural measures. Baskets were used to hold store, and carry food and materials.
Early explorers of America relied on a very small amount of tools. With the amount of items the typical teenager has on hand today, there would need to be a carriage just for their stuff!
This is a giant skeleton of a prehistoric fish. It would be a nightmare if a fisherman would catch something like this today. Imagine the size of the fishing pole.
