Today’s animation is an elongated, crescent-shaped ceramic object 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. The width of the crescent-shaped tool matches the width of incised pottery sherds from the site, and this suggests that this object was a tool used to incise pottery found at the site.  It was found in a feature along with a similarly shaped tool.

    Bernard, the addition of a scale is excellent. Maybe it could not be quite as vivid, so it doesn’t take away from the artifact. Thank you once more. mj
