Animation of the Day: Colonial Features and an STP from George Washington’s Ferry Farm

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


Today’s animation is a cluster of linear features, possibly associated with drainage, from an 18th century context that may be attributed to George Washington and his family in the home where he grew up as a boy from the age of 6 until his early 20s. It was excavated  earlier this year at George Washington’s Ferry Farm. A square hole evident in the animation is a shovel test pit initially excavated in a 1990s era survey of Ferry Farm.
