Animated Object of the Day: Pathological Deer Rib/Vertebra

by Bernard K. Means, Project Director

On May 7, 2013, I  arrived at the Virginia Museum of Natural History (VMNH) in Martinsville, Virginia, accompanied by Digital Zooarchaeologist Mariana Zechni, and Digital Curation Supervisor Ashley McCuistion.  Our goal this day and the next two days was to scan animal bones from the type collection maintained by VMNH’s Curator of Archaeology Dr. Elizabeth Moore, as well as other items in their archaeological collection.  One of the more unique was this pathological deer rib/vertebra, which stood out in the VMNH collection.  While we do not have the actual object, we do have a digital model–which we have also printed.
