Animation of the Day: 18th Century Foundation at the Bray School

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


The morning of  July 30, 2014, found me at the location of the joint College of William and Mary/Colonial Williamsburg Foundation CWF) Historical Archaeology Field School.  Under the direction of CWF’s Mark Kostro, field school students are working in the location of the Bray School, founded in 1760 to educate African Americans.  Details on these excavations can be found here. Today’s animation is a  scan made using the Sense 3D scanner on a section of a foundation attributed to either a diary or a smokehouse. The large square opening adjacent to the foundation is a post hole. And, there is also a drainage pipe and trench  as well.
