Today’s animation is a roasted pig head provided by Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU)  student John Bush.  The pig head was scanned in a frozen (but thawing) state, which added some urgency to the scanning process.  Following scanning of the pig head, John defleshed the pig head off site, and the VCL subsequently scanned the pig’s cranium and mandibles prior to their incorporation into an experimental archaeology project presented by John at the 2014 VCU undergraduate poster conference. This animation was created by VCL’s Digital Curation Specialist Lauren Volkers on April 29, 2014.
