Animation of the Day: Savannah River Point from the Doerschuk Site, North Carolina

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory (VCL)


Today’s animation is a Savannah River point from the Doerschuck Site, North Carolina. This point was scanned on August 5, 2014 in the Research Laboratories of Archaeology at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The point is illustrated as Point A in Figure 37 on Page 42 of Coe’s 1964 work “Formative Cultures of the Carolina Piedmont,” Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, Volume 54, Part 5.

This point, as well as others from Coe’s (1964) monograph, were scanned to aid in the creation of a digital projectile point typology funded by the Department of Defense’s Legacy Program, as detailed here.
