Animation of the Day: Colonoware Vessel from Ferry Farm

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


Today’s animation are mended fragments of colonoware bowl recovered archaeologically at George Washington’s Ferry Farm.  This low-fired earthenware vessel was used and possibly made by one of the enslaved individuals that labored at Ferry Farm.  The actual colonoware vessel is currently on display at George Washington’s boyhood home.
