It Must Be Halloween

Last week, (just in time for the creepiest of holidays), conservators x-rayed a collection from the Federal Reserve prior to the artifacts going into treatment. And TAKE A LOOK at what developed! What appeared to be a misshapen clump of concretion seems to be some kind of a spooky house. And it’s haunted too – check out the ghostly shape floating in the lower left window!

Is it a real x-ray? Yes, it is. It is a real x-ray of a real artifact excavated from a real site. Really.

Are we going to tell you what it is? No, because we don’t know yet!
