Today’s animation is an  American Indian pottery sherd recovered archaeologically by Jamestown Rediscovery. This sherd was found in an historic context and mends with another, smaller  sherd. It was scanned on May 8, 2014, in the Virtual Curation Laboratory by Digital Curation Specialist Lauren Volkers. Lauren created this animation. Jamestown’s Jeff Aronowitz and Danny Schmidt brought the larger sherd to the VCL on May 8. 2014, and it “mends” exactly with the replica of the smaller sherd. For an animation of the smaller sherd, go to: https://virtualcurationmuseum.wordpress.com/2014/05/09/animation-of-the-day-american-indian-pottery-sherd-from-jamestown/
