The artifact was made available for scanning in the Virtual Curation Laboratory by teacher James Triesler of Clover Hill High School in Midlothian, Virginia. A video produced for Instagram by Archaeology in the Community in the Virtual Curation Laboratory features Olivia McCarty discussing the object, using a printed version made with a MakerBot Replicator.  The InstaGram video can be found here: http://instagram.com/p/jchSwqKqRG/#
