Animation of the Day: Escutcheon from Ferry Farm

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



Today’s animation is an escutcheon recovered archaeologically at George Washington’s Ferry Farm.   The decorative molded design may represent tobacco leaves, a major crop grown at George Washington’s Ferry Farm during the 18th and 19th centuries. This escutcheon was scanned on site in the Small Finds Laboratory at Ferry Farm on March 10, 2014  as part of an effort to scan archaeologically recovered furnishings.  Details on this effort can be found here.
