Beyond Documentation: 3D Data in Archaeology

the Virtual Curation Laboratory

by Bernard K. Means, Director

A nice overview of the research and educational dimensions of virtual curation can be found in a short article recently published by the Texas Archeological Society:

I contributed the discussion on public archaeology.  Below, I include a copy of the pages from that issue, but to access digital models of the artifacts that can be manipulated you will need to download the article and view it in Adobe Acrobat.
