Animation of the Day: Rowel from Jamestown

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


Today’s animation is a rowel recovered archaeologically by Jamestown Rediscovery. This rowel is part of a spur and details on the changes of English spurs over time can be found in this web page by Sara Rivers Cofield. The illustration below is adapted from Stephen Grancsay (1955)  Equestrian Equipment, a catalog for a loan exhibition held at the J. B. Speed Art Museum, Louisville, Kentucky, from May 4 to July 3, 1955.
