Butchered Cow Scapula (VCU_3D_2013)
This butchered cow scapula provides evidence of the daily lives and diets of enslaved people at Mount Vernon. These bones are often smaller and of lower quality than the Washington family had, which suggests stews rather than roasts as part of a slave’s daily diet. Recovered archaeologically from the House for Families, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, ca. 18th-19th century. 3D scanned with a NextEngine Desktop 3D scanner in the archaeology laboratory at George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Description by Virginia Commonwealth University student Jessica Evans. Digital model provided by the Virtual Curation Laboratory courtesy of the Mount Vernon Ladies Association.
