Today’s animation is a rim sherd with punctates from the Consol site, a Monongahela tradition village. It has been rotated 90 degrees to highlight the punctates. It was recovered archaeologically by members of the Westmoreland Archaeological Society, a chapter of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology. This sherd was scanned by now VCU alumnus Crystal Castelberry on October 10, 2012.
