Today’s animation is a fragment of a drilled bone pendant recovered in 1937 by a Work Projects Administration (WPA) crew from the Reckner site, a Monongahela tradition village site located in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. It is now within the archaeological collections of The State Museum of Pennsylvania (TSMP). This particular object was scanned on July 30, 2013 at TSMP with support from a Virginia Commonwealth University College of Humanities and Sciences Faculty Council’s Need Grants Award. Details on that award can be found here.
