Animation of the Day: Pierced Bear Tooth

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


Today’s animation is a pierced bear canine recovered archaeologically from the Hatfield site, a Monongahela village excavated by members of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology’s Allegheny Chapter in Washington County, Pennsylvania. This pierced bear tooth was likely worn as part of a necklace.
