3D Corner Tang Biface from the Texas Forestry Museum

Today we animated a corner tang biface from our documentation efforts at the Texas Forestry Museum in Lufkin, Texas. While we are not scanning every projectile point in 3D for this project, we are collecting the orthogonal measurements of maximum length (MaxL), width (MaxW), thickness (MaxTh), as well as the stem width (StWd) for each specimen. We are also taking high-resolution photographs of both sides of each stone artifact.

I have included a 2D screenshot of the artifact for those of you that want a scale. You can click on either of the images to see them in a slightly higher resolution.

My research is focused at the confluence of archaeology, engineering, computer science, and the humanities. I am particularly interested in the application of 3D technologies to archaeological problems, geometric morphometrics, network analyses, archaeological theory, and archaeological science.
