This presentation is focused upon the collection, post-processing, inspection, and analysis of three- dimensional (3D) scan data. While the production of 3D scans has signaled the completion of projects in the past, recent developments have demonstrated that 3D data can be used to better characterize those attributes associated with the shape, form, allometry (size), and asymmetry of artifacts. Those scan data used in this presentation include the Belcher Engraved and Smithport Plain Caddo bottles from the Belcher and Smithport Landing sites in Northwest Louisiana. These Caddo bottles were scanned at Northwestern State University and the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum. Funding for this project comes from a grant by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training.
