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. These regional differences signal cultural diversification and adaptation, suggesting that groups of early hunter-gatherer Americans may have changed the way they were social interacting at this time. This figure shows one analysis used to study shapes left behind from their production on either side of the projectile points. Credit: Sebastian Wärmländer, Stockholm University

Dr. Joseph Gingerich, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, co-authored a journal article PLOS ONE titled “Tracing social interactions in Pleistocene North America via 3D model analysis of stone tool asymmetry.” Gingerich and the research team used 3D imaging and morphometric analysis to study subtle changes in how early inhabitants in North […]
