Resources

Both the Council for West Virginia Archaeology (CWVA) and the West Virginia Archeology Society (WVAS) work to promote understanding our prehistoric heritage. Since ours is only part of a larger regional picture, we selected Internet resources on West Virginia prehistory and some of the better sites from the region. We also linked to sites on ethnology (lifeways) and fossil hominids.

Resources

 

The web is a wonderful tool, but it is so easy to publish a page that any loon or fringe group can produce an attractive and seemingly credible web site. We cannot vouch for the absolute accuracy of all of these links, but we did not just assemble a collection. Each was inspected to some degree of depth, and they appear to be fairly reliable. We noted caveats where we thought they were needed.
Suitability for children is another issue. Assembling these was time consuming, and testing each one thoroughly was out of the question. However, we do not think these links will pose a problem.

What is a "Resource"? We use the Resources category for links to content on other sites. However, we also use the Resources category to link to internal pages that provide helpful information, or tools, to support research, and public education. Furthermore, a Resource may be a wiki page that provides additional information for use on wiki pages in other groups (e.g., Research); for example, our Standardized Rivers List might be consulted by the author of a Research wiki page, to help them determine which river system is associated with their project location.
