Animation of the Day: Iron Alloy Arrow Point from Jamestown

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



Today’s animation is an iron alloy arrow point recovered archaeologically by Jamestown Rediscovery. It was scanned on November 14, 2014, in the Rediscovery Jamestown archaeological laboratory and printed versions will be incorporated into public education and outreach programs to contrast with American Indian-made chipped stone arrow heads, such as this one.
