3D Clovis: Preview

I recently visited Eastern New Mexico University #ENMU to document a selection of ceramics from the Miles Collection, and a number of Clovis points from Blackwater Draw National Historic Site. These models represent a small portion of the scans from ENMU, which include ceramics, lithics, fauna and megafauna. My thanks to the faculty and staff in the Department of Anthropology at #ENMU; Katy Putsavage and George Crawford in particular.


A 3D preview for this scan is below. To interact with it, click play, wait for the 3D mesh to load, then click/drag the image to rotate. Since this model is not yet fully processed, minor alterations may occur prior to publication.
