A plaster field jacket containing large fragments of birch bark was made during the excavation of the Windermere site, near Lawson, in 1983. The fragments are thought to be rare archaeological remains of a birch bark container. The cast was scanned in a Micro-CT scanner by Professor Andrew Nelson of the Anthropology Department at Western University in December 2018. This video takes you through the different layers present inside of the cast.
