Animated Object of the Day: Os Coxa of a Groundhog

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory

Today’s animated object is the os coxa of a groundhog from George Washington’s Ferry Farm.  This groundhog bone was recovered archaeologically in 2012 from a shovel test pit excavated by an earlier archaeologist in the 1990s.  Details on this groundhog finding are available here.
