Today’s animation is a doll head recovered archaeologically from a free African American site in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and dates to the early 19th century A.D. It is now within the archaeological collections of The State Museum of Pennsylvania (TSMP). This doll head shows a woman wearing a hat and was scanned by now VCU alumnus Crystal Castleberry on February 7, 2013. It was animated by Lauren Volkers on May 5, 2014.
