Another great one that really benefits from scanning. A Clovis uniface found in the North Bank Mammoth kills in the early 1960s. Enjoy! ENMU – Clovis Uniface (LA3324-24121) by Dr. Robert Z. Selden Jr. on Sketchfab
Dr. Zac Selden has been doing a lot of 3D scanning with one of our own faculty, Katy Putsavage. Although initially the focus was on pottery from the Miles Collection, he was kind enough to take on some Paleoindian artifacts … Continue reading
Unless you live under a rock, or are lucky enough to avoid all media, you probably know there is some good and interesting news from Oregon this week. Loren Davis, an associate professor of anthropology at OSU, was called to … Continue reading

Here are a few photos of the Blackwater Draw Open House and Prehistory Day. Thanks to everyone who came out and especially those who dedicated a Saturday to make this event possible. As usual, we were all so busy that … Continue reading
Here is a great photo-mosaic from the North Bank excavations in the early 1960s. The humans in the background examining the stratigraphy really put the Clovis-age mammoths in their proper scale. Unfortunately, Mammoth IV in the background is covered in … Continue reading
I have been searching for some time for information about the weight of mammoth tusks. I quite inadvertently came across this today while searching something else. Such is the way of libraries and the internet. It seems that the old … Continue reading
