Today’s animation is a medicine bottle fragment found during archaeological investigations at Marine Corps Base Quantico. Using a liberal coating of a talc-like powder, it was scanned by now Virginia Commonwealth University alumnus Clinton King on November 28, 2011. The object was at that time on loan from the Fort Lee Regional Archaeological Curation Facility (RACF), but has since been returned. Researchers can access this digital data file without having to travel to RACF .
