Today’s animation is a small cabinet key recovered archaeologically at George Washington’s Ferry Farm. This key was scanned on site in the Small Finds Laboratory at Ferry Farm on March 10, 2014 by Digital Curation Specialist Lauren Volkers and Intern Vivian Hite as part of an effort to scan archaeologically recovered furnishings. Lauren Volkers created the digital model used as a basis for this animation on March 11, 2014 in the Virtual Curation Laboratory in Richmond, Virginia. Details on this effort can be found here.
