One of the features being excavated on July 30, 2014, by the joint College of William and Mary/Colonial Williamsburg Foundation CWF) Historical Archaeology Field School was a well associated with the Bray School, founded in 1760 to educate African Americans.   CWF’s Mark Kostro invited me to scan the well using the Sense 3D scanner.  Because the Sense 3D scanner creates real-time results, I was able to show the resulting digital model to field school staff and students.
