Today’s animation is a ceramic vessel fragment (sherd) recovered from the Campbell Farm site, a Monongahela tradition village. The sherd has been purposely worked into a circular shape, possibly to act as a gaming token.  The sherd was provided for scanning by William C. Johnson, an expert on the Monongahela tradition who is actively researching the Campbell Farm site, and other Monongahela tradition sites as well.
