Today’s animation is a fabric-impressed sherd found during archaeological investigations in the Stafford County, Virginia, portion of Marine Corps Base Quantico. The sherd was scanned by now Virginia Commonwealth University alumnus Crystal Castleberry on November 15, 2012. 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 .
