3D Scan Data for Selected Clovis-Age Artifacts from the Gault Site (41BL323)

On August 19, 2016, selected Clovis artifacts from the Gault site (41BL323) were scanned in advance of a large collaborative research project. These data were collected using a NextEngineHD running ScanStudioHD Pro, and were post-processed in Geomagic Design X 2016.0.1. All data associated with this project have been made publicly available (open access) and are accessible in Zenodo under a Creative Commons Attribution license, where they can be downloaded for use in additional projects and learning activities. These data have the capacity to augment a variety of research designs spanning the digital humanities, applications of geometric morphometrics, and many others. Additionally, these scans will augment a wide range of comparative research topics throughout the Americas and beyond. Reuse potential for these data is significant.

Unprocessed 3D data are included on the landing page, and links to the processed files are included in the data paper. Download the data paper here: 3D Scan Data for Selected Clovis-Age Artifacts from the Gault Site (41BL323)
