We are professional archaeologists working in West Virginia or with research interests here. Nearly all of us are associated with government agencies or the consulting firms that do much of the actual exploration and excavation required by Federal law (usually called Section 106 compliance). Many of our members work in academia, as well, including both Marshall University and West Virginia University.
We built this web page to grow and become a resource for understanding the people who made the prehistory and history of West Virginia. We hope you will return periodically, and as you do, you will find new material for quite some time.
Expect to find original material, obscure older pieces, links to sites and articles of special value, and some unique features that will prove helpful to everyone with a curiosity about past life in these mountains.
