This Belcher Ridged vessel comes from the Belcher Site in Northwest Louisiana, is curated at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Funding to produce this 3D model comes from a grant to Selden from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training. Many thanks to the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma, and Dr. Pete Gregory for the requisite permissions needed to access and scan this vessel.
