Animated Object of the Day: Bartmann Jug Medallion Fragment from Jamestown

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



Today’s animation is a medallion from a Bartmann jug fragment that was recovered archaeologically by Jamestown Rediscovery and scanned in their archaeological laboratory. As noted here, “the jugs are known as Bartmann or “bearded man” for the bewhiskered face that adorns the neck.” It was scanned in the Jamestown Rediscovery laboratory on September 5, 2014, and edited and printed in the Virtual Curation Laboratory on September 9. 2014.
