Spirit Bird Cave Archaeology Project


Spirit Bird Cave
Spirit Bird Cave (San Juan County, UT)

The Spirit Bird Cave Archaeology Project was developed to collect data for my undergraduate thesis, as well as to provide an opportunity for non-invasive fieldwork for other undergraduate students. For this project, I supervised a crew of HSU internship students in the development of a project field manual to accompany photogrammetry field work in Blanding, Utah. I directed efforts to raise funding and support for a rock art field photography trip to Utah. After conducting fieldwork, I instructed and supervised the lab analysis and test construction of a test model using Agisoft Photoscan software. The information learned from this project was applied to my undergraduate thesis project Modeling Consciousness in Archaeology: A Non-Invasive Approach.
