Animation of the Day: Horseshoe Fragment

By Ashley Perry, Intern with the Virtual Curation Laboratory.


Today’s animation is a horseshoe fragment that was found at the Bladensburg Battlefield site (51NE44) in Washington, D.C. along with a metal coffee pot spout  and was scanned by intern Ashley Perry on February 4th, 2014. Though the artifact was recovered from  a site associated with the War of 1812, it may belong to a later Civil War component, or it is possible that it is one of many domestic materials recovered dating from the nineteenth to early twentieth centuries.
