A major role of the Arkansas Archeological Survey is to help educate the public about the prehistory and history of Arkansas. Through the Survey's Education Program, we provide a variety of services and materials to help teachers, students, and others of the general public to understand and appreciate Arkansas's rich archeological heritage.

Participating in Archeology WeekThe Survey has produced a variety of materials to aid teachers in their instruction on Arkansas history, prehistory, and Native Americans. These materials include a teacher's packet with informational flyers and brochures, books, slide sets, exhibits, and a Discovery Box. Also available is a set of interrelated materialsóbook, slides, exhibit, and videoócalled Crossroads of the Past, and our recently launched Indians of Arkansas website containing educational resources for those interested in Arkansas Indian history, culture, and archeology. Details about these materials and how to borrow or purchase them can be found in Teaching Resources.

Downloadable materials on a range of topics can be found in the Flyers & Handouts section.

In the spring, the Survey cosponsors with the Arkansas Archeological Society the annual Arkansas Archeology Month, which features presentations, exhibits, and activities highlighting the state's archeological heritage.

Topics of interest about archeology education can be found in Education News and links to other interesting websites about archeology can be accessed through Archeology Links.

University-level students who wish to acquire real-world experience in public archeology or cultural resource management may benefit from participating in our internship program. The program is offered in cooperation with the Department of Anthropology, University of Arkansas.

In our continuing effort to provide these resources, we plan to add materials regularly. Please check back often for new postings. For additional information on any of these topics, contact us at archinfo@uark.edu.
