3D Clovis Point from the Murray Springs Site

Clovis point ASM A-33111 from the Murray Springs Site, AZ EE:8:25(ASM), curated in the Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona. Provenience: Location 1, occupation surface.

In addition to the Clovis points, we were also able to scan quite a few ceramic vessels  in advance of a pilot study. More to come on that project, but a preview of one of the scanned vessels can be seen below.

Many thanks to the faculty and staff of the Arizona State Museum for the requisite permissions and access needed to scan this Clovis point.
