ENMU – Clovis Point (LA3324-24156) by Dr. Robert Z. Selden Jr. on Sketchfab From the North Bank mammoth kills.
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
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
