The 3D Digitization of the World Trade Center Wreck (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christopher Dostal.

Accurate documentation of cultural heritage materials is the lynchpin for all aspects of archaeological investigation. When it comes to the reconstruction and interpretation of shipwrecks, this is especially true. The more accurate and true to life the documentation is, the more accurate the interpretation and reconstruction of a ship will be. The methods by which ships have been documented have evolved rapidly over the years, though each new and innovative method is tied to foundational...


Conservation at the Intersection of the Archaeological and Historical Records (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lesley Haines.

As the process of conserving USS Monitor artifacts continues, the Batten Conservation Complex staff at the Mariners’ Museum and Park constantly witness the intersection of the archaeological and historical records. There is an abundance of material to consult. Numerous documents related to Monitor survive, including newspaper articles, survivors’ accounts of the sinking, and ship plans. Additionally, NOAA’s excavations and continued study of the shipwreck combined with the on-going conservation...

Efficient and Effective in situ Heritage Management: Using 3D photomodels to document and assess a site's condition. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kotaro Yamafune. Nicholas C. Budsberg. Charles D Bendig.

Archaeological work and cultural heritage management are significantly limited by time, personnel, and financial resources.  Many submerged and terrestrial archaeological sites are fragile, and are located in easily accessible areas, leaving them exposed to destructive processes.  The successful management of our cultural heritage involves regularly monitoring each site, but most management groups lack sufficient resources to conduct detailed surveys that include metrics, qualitative...

La Belle: Lessons Learned and Applied in Order to Restructure the Use of Watercraft Data (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Peter D. Fix.

Although the archaeological team excavating La Belle performed an extraordinary job at timber recording, all 1:1 drawings were traced by hand on Mylar and then digitized into AutoCAD. That data was later assembled into lines drawings, profile and plan-view scale drawings.  In advance of freeze-drying individual components of La Belle, there was an immediate need for precision measurements from drawings that were already two generations removed from the original source. The pain-staking process...

Reformulating Cultural Heritage Management Strategies in the Post-Soviet Caucasus region. (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alvaro Higueras.

The inheritance of Soviet-molded approaches to cultural heritage has seen slow changes in the last two decades in ex-Soviet South Caucasian countries. This is not surprising: if the same specialists continue to run and manage heritage change is expected to be slow; new generations are just starting to work in state agencies. The exposure of the systems to new approaches and its practical application is a difficult task. To compound the problems, the heritage of Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia is...

Taking a Byte out of Rattlesnake: An Overview of the Rattlesnake Canyon Project (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Audrey Lindsay. Carolyn E. Boyd. Victoria L. Roberts. Jerod L. Roberts. Timothy J. Murphy IV.

The Rattlesnake Canyon mural represents one of the most well-preserved and compositionally intricate rock art murals in the Lower Pecos Canyonlands, and perhaps the world. Deposited gravels from a major flood episode in June 2014, however, raised the canyon floor approximately 10 feet, enabling future floods to destroy the fragile panel. The Rattlesnake Canyon Project is an emergency collaborative effort among Texas Tech University, the National Park Service, and Shumla to document this...
