    3D Clovis Points from the Gault Site (41BL323)

    Last week we visited TARL, and ran into our good friends from the Gault School of Archaeological Research, who graciously allowed us to scan a selection of Clovis points from the Gault site in Central Texas. View and interact with the first of the models here.

    Networking NAGPRA

    Using citation data harvested from Westlaw and LexisNexis, we built an interactive network that illustrates how NAGPRA litigation is linked by common citations. The analysis of this network is the topic of a forthcoming paper.

    3D Dart Points from the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas

    We are creating a large open access 3D comparative dataset of all dart points from the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas for use in the classroom as well as in research.

    Agate Basin Points from Blackwater Draw NHS

    While at #ENMU, we also had the opportunity to scan a few Agate Basin points from Blackwater Draw NHS. See those here.

    Social Networking and Institutions

    Is social media worth the effort? We found that it largely depends on whether your goal is to broadcast your message, or to legitimately engage with your audience.

    An Interactive Family Tree for Archaeology PhDs

    Making the move to interactive figures allows us to include an abundance of information within a single figure, and they can be used for everything from genealogy and twitter networks to social and complex network analyses.

    3D Cardboard Puzzle–Clovis Point

    Using a CAD model of a Clovis point, I generated a 3D cardboard puzzle that can be used for educational and recreational activities. Click here to learn how to build your own!

    Citation Networks as (Partial) Epistemology

    Using citation networks, we can identify schools of thought and practice, identify those references with the highest authority, and–potentially–predict shifts in practice.

    Scanning Electron Microscopy of Caddo Ceramics

    We are using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to look for patterns associated with vitrification in Caddo ceramics. This study of ceramic technological organization may help us to better understand the variable firing processes used by the Caddo.

GM – Ceramics

Our emended approach to the analysis of geometric morphometrics is outlined here, and employs the geomorph package in R. Focusing on morphological variation among several vessel forms, our recent efforts have been aimed at the analysis of intact and/or reconstructed Caddo NAGPRA vessels…

Network Analysis

While I have used networks in the past to better illustrate potential connections between sites (and populations) based largely upon similarity indices, I am also using networks to explore epistemological issues that articulate with a number of our projects. These models continue to be used…

Predictive Modeling

We have begun work on two predictive models; one for the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas (Davy Crockett National Forest), and the other for the Big Thicket National Preserve. These models, once complete, will help resource managers to make more…
