Today’s animation is a butchered horse ulna recovered archaeologically by Jamestown Rediscovery. It was scanned on September 5, 2014,  at the Jamestown Rediscovery laboratory. Cut marks on the ulna indicate an attempt to remove flesh for consumption and the bone also exhibits evidence of burning.  The butchered bone dates to the “starving time” during the winter of 1609-1610.
