Animation of the Day: Garoga Incised Vessel from New York

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


Today’s animation is a mocha ware vessel from New York. It was scanned at the New York State Museum (NYSM) in July 2014. The NYSM’s John Hart provides us with the following information:

This Garoga Incised vessel (NYSM-45635) is from the mid-16th century A.D. Smith-Pagerie site in the Mohawk River basin, Fulton County, New York. The site was excavated in the summers of 1968 and 1970 by a New York State Museum crew and the University at Albany field school under the direction of Dr. Robert E. Funk. The pot was recovered from Feature 27, a central hearth within Longhouse 1.
Details about the site are available in New York State Museum Bulletin 503 (2003), Three Sixteenth-Century Mohawk Iroquois Village Sites by Robert E. Funk and Robert D. Kuhn, which is available electronically free at: .
