Register Now with the Friends of NCPTT (3rd Party Registration)The objective of this workshop is to share and discuss the latest uses of 3D imaging of archeological artifacts in order to improve the utility and precision of analyses that employ 3D data to assess morphological variation. Additional discussions will cover topics related to digital curation and public archeology, where the utility of 3D scans reach beyond traditional analyses. To accomplish this, we are bringing together selected experts to one location to share their expertise. This four-day event will include lectures, a hands-on practicum, data analysis demonstrations, and discussions of best practices and data curation.


  1. Robert Z. Selden, Jr. (Stephen F. Austin State University and Jean Monnet University) – ceramics/digital curation
  2. Bernard K. Means (Virginia Commonwealth University) – public archeology/outreach
  3. Loren Davis (Oregon State University) – 3-D projectile points
  4. Michael Schott (University of Akron)–theory and methods
