Old Art, New Perspectives: Recent work at Shumla Archaeological Research Center

Over the past 20 years Shumla has been on a mission to preserve what we now recognize to be the oldest known "books" in North America. With increased usage of digital technologies we are learning so much more than we ever thought possible. This presentation will give an overview of the Lower Pecos Canyonlands rock art and touch on the current methodology developed by Shumla to better understand these prehistoric masterpieces including the classifications Shumla uses, painting techniques, use of Unmanned Ariel Vehicles (UAVs or drones), 3D Modeling, attribute data collection, and more.
