Rotating Spigot!

Dr. Bernard Means of the Virginia Commonwealth University, Virtual Curation Laboratory recently 3-d scanned and animated a cupric spigot recovered from excavations at Colchester.  The spigot was found on the Morris Pound lot in the historic town.  Pound was a vintner.  Though relatively common on eighteenth century sites, the context offers the possibility that the spigot was used in the wine-making process.
