Gingerich Co-Authors Article on 3D Analysis of Early Americans’ Clovis Points

Scientists analyzed three-dimensional models of Clovis projectile points from Smithsonian and other museum collections to examine how patterns and marks made in crafting these tools began to vary regionally 12,500 years ago.
