Animation of the Day: Vessel from the Consol Site

Today’s animation is a mended vessel from the Consol site, a Monongahela tradition village.  It was recovered archaeologically by members of the Westmoreland Archaeological Society, a chapter of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology (SPA). I rescanned this vessel at the 2014 Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology annual meeting. This animation was created by Digital Technology Supervisor Allen Huber.

  1. This is awesome work!

    Can those 3d files be made available to the public or are there issues with that? I don’t know if it’s the kind of format that’d be useable for non-professional 3d printers but I know a lot of schools and families who’d be interested.

    Thanks.

    • There are some permission and technical issues but as we work them out, we will be putting at least some of our models online in a format that can be used for schools and professional and nonprofessional individuals. We are in talks with Jamestown Rediscovery and others to make sure our models have associated contextual information.
