A Holiday Tree from the Virtual Curation Laboratory

by Bernard K. Means, Project Director

Below you will find the 2013 holiday “tree” from the Virtual Curation Laboratory.  The “tree” is a Vosburg Corner Notched point from Perry County, Pennsylvania, the “base” is a chunkey stone from Somerset County, Pennsylvania–excavated by the WPA during 1939 or 1940–and the “presents” include: a wig hair curler from George Washington’s Ferry Farm; a piggy bank top (in pig form!) from the Alexandria Archaeology Museum in Alexandria, Virginia; a skull from a recently deceased cat found in the woods by a VCU student; and, an Acheulean handaxe from South Africa.
