Today’s animation is a brass counter-weight from a pharmaceutical weight and scale box recovered archaeologically by Jamestown Rediscovery. The weight is in the shape of a lion grasping a ball and was manufactured in Nuremburg, Germany. It was scanned on May 1, 2014 at the Jamestown Rediscovery laboratory by Digital Curation Specialist Lauren Volkers and VCL Intern Vivian Hite. Further details on this finding can be found here.
