3D Clovis: Preview

I recently had the opportunity to visit Eastern New Mexico University #ENMU to document a selection of ceramics from the Miles Collection (more on that next week), and was also able to scan a number of Clovis points from Blackwater Draw National Historic Site. These models represent only a small portion of the scans from ENMU, where I was able to scan ceramics, lithics, fauna and megafauna. Many of these scans will be made available over the coming weeks.

My thanks go 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.

More to come.
