Today’s animation is a naturally shed antler that has been modified on one end to have a blunt edge and may have served as a defleshing tool.  This artifact is from the Consol site, a Monongahela tradition village, and was recovered archaeologically by members of the Westmoreland Archaeological Society, a chapter of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology.
