This portion of a wooden tompion was recovered from Betsy, a shipwreck (44YO0088) located in the York River, off the coast of Yorktown, Virginia. Tompions were plugs that protected cannon from the elements when not engaged. Today, tampions have evolved into works of art. The remains of Betsy were in especially good condition (Broadwater 1992:39). It was part of a fleet of vessels that the British scuttled in 1781. See John Broadwater 1992 Shipwreck in a Swimming Pool: An Assessment of the Methodology and Technology Utilized on the Yorktown Shipwreck Archaeological Project. Historical Archaeology 26(4):26-46. This artifact was 3-D scanned with a Go!Scan 50 at the archaeological curation facility of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources in Richmond, Virginia.
