The Arkansas Archeological Survey is launching a new website, "Arkansas Novaculite: A Virtual Comparative Collection."The website url is: http://arkarcheology.uark.edu/novaculite/index.html
The website describes and illustrates novaculite from the Ouachita Mountains as an important resource that was chipped into stone tools by Indians in the past, and is manufactured into whetstones today. This website is intended to be an educational resource for people interested in Arkansas history, archeology, and Indians of Arkansas, as well as a research tool for archeologists who need to identify novaculite from archeological sites. Highlights of the website include an interactive map and high-quality photographs that show the range of novaculite colors and textures.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The Arkansas Archeological Survey is a unit of the University of Arkansas System.
