Animation of the Day: 17th Century Smoking Pipe from Carter’s Grove

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory


Today’s animation is a 17th century smoking pipe recovered archaeologically by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation (CWF) from the Carter’s Grove site. It was scanned in CWF”s archaeological collections facility on November 4, 2013.  The bowl of the pipe was “closed” by our scanner’s software, which perceived the opening as a data hole.  We can scan in such a way as to avoid this issue, but this is a time-consuming process.
