Animation of the Day: Forensic Reconstruction of an Individual from Burial 3 in the Schuyler Flatts Burial Ground

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



Today’s animation is a forensic reconstruction of a woman recovered from the Schuyler Flatts Burial Ground, an 18th century African American cemetery near Albany, New York.  More details on this cemetery can be found here. This  reconstruction of the individual from Burial 3 was scanned at the New York State Museum (NYSM) by NYSM bioarchaeology technician Julie Weatherwax using the Virtual Curation Laboratory’s Sense 3D scanner. The artist who sculpted this face is Gay Malin, a former NYSM exhibit specialist.
