Dr. Benjamin A. Steerecontributed a chapter to "Drawing with Great Needles: Ancient Tattoo Traditions of North America," scheduled to release in November. Steere explores the possible function of Woodland period Swift Creek ceramic designs as tattoo patterns and the correspondence of motifs between corporeal and non-corporeal art in middle range societies.


Dr. Ashley Smallwood published “Building experimental use-wear analouges for Clovis biface functions” in Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences. The research documented use-wear traces on replica Clovis points and bifaces used in various tasks. Results later informed interpretation of use-wear traces found on bifaces from the Gault (Texas) site.
