3D Scanning, Bronze Age Swords & Social Networks: Using data to reconstruct shared knowledge

Come learn about 3D scanning, statistics, and network analysis!
 
Kristy Golubiewski-Davis will detail her research using 3D scans of Bronze Age swords (~1600-800BC) to recreate community networks of knowledge. The aim of the work is to visualize the networks of specialized knowledge across space. Digital methods were used to identify the decisions of specialized craft workers and generate social networks that spread knowledge around the world.
 
This project serves as a case study for thinking about digital project development and management: how can you juggle multiple methods and a large data set while staying focused on building scholarly arguments?
