New On-line Resources from NPS
Please visit the National Park Service Archeology & Ethnography
program web site at www.cr.nps.gov/aad Our whole design is new, and the
content of our pages either has been updated or is new.
See our expanded "For the Public" section with pages on amateur
archeology, caring for sites, more teacher resources, and Frequently Asked
Questions. The current issue and back issues of Common Ground:
Archeology and Ethnography in the Public Interest are now online.
Our section on Distance Learning is new and features on-line courses,
including the popular Managing Archeological Collections. One of our new
guides is Archeology for Interpreters, inviting learners to explore the
world of archeology through online activities, illustrated case studies and
fun facts and to apply what they learn to public interpretations about the
past. It provides the opportunity to learn about basic archeological
methods, techniques and up-to-date interpretations. It also illustrates
basic relationships between archeology, preservation, and preservation
See the "Sites and Collections" section for a much more in-depth look
at the long-term preservation and care of archeological sites and
collections in our national parks and across the United States. Our
"Peoples and Cultures" section is totally revamped and focuses on the
goals, activities, and products of NPS ethnographers.
