hand axeThe DANA-WH archaeology collection currently includes textual (e.g., metric and non-metric attributes of artifacts) content warehoused in databases and multimedia (e.g., two-dimensional (2D) images and three-dimensional (3D) models of artifacts stored in graphics servers. The collection is unique in it's assemblage of highly accurate 3D models of fragile and rare artifacts. Resources currently accessible via the DANA-WH application include assemblages from the Three Affiliated Tribes (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara) of North Dakota, Archaic projectile points from Rustad, North Dakota, Samoan stone, shell, and coral tools, Fijian stone tools and ceramics, and pottery from India. Proposed future additions include Assyrian cuneiform tablets, Oldowan and Acheulean assemblages from Tanzania, and expanded content for Oceanian material culture assemblages. As we expand collaborations we will add additional content from elsewhere around the globe.
