Animation of the Week: Bone Bead from Monongahela Village Site

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


Today’s animation is a fragment of a bone bead recovered in 1939 or 1940 by a Work Projects Administration (WPA) crew from the Fort Hill site, a Monongahela tradition village site located in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. It is now within the archaeological collections of The State Museum of Pennsylvania (TSMP).
