On July 30, 2014, I visited the excavations of an 18th-century structure on the campus of the College of William and Mary, adjacent to the Wren Building. The excavations, conducted under the auspices of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation CWF), have uncovered the remains of what appear to the the foundations of a brewery. The scan made using the Sense 3D scanner focuses on a part of the structure showing where an addition had been made, cut by a modern utility line. CWF archaeologist (and former intern in the VCL) Crystal Castleberry provided me with a tour of the excavations.
