3D Clovis Point from the Blackwater Draw National Historic Site

This Clovis point comes from a known context at the Blackwater Draw National Historic Site. Many thanks to George Crawford and the folks at the Blackwater Draw Museum for the requisite permissions and access needed to scan these points. As with all of our scans, we are generating data papers that detail the hardware, software and methods used to generate the scans. These also include a discussion of spatial and temporal context.

Our work at the Blackwater Draw Museum served as the catalyst for what has now been officially dubbed the Clovis Road Show; an effort that we are making to aggregate (digitally) and disseminate (widely–open access) those projectile points and other artifacts that were excavated from this important archaeological site.

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.
