Archaeology on the Web

There are thousands upon thousands of web pages devoted to archaeology. Here are a few to get you started:

Wikipedia Archaeology Portal
Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia created by thousands of users worldwide. This page is the portal into the archaeology section By way of example, here is a link to the article about the Clovis culture.
This large site is arranged like many web portals, offering links to a variety of archaeology-related subjects, news, jobs, book reviews, and much more.
Yahoo! Archaeology
Speaking of web portals, Yahoo! is a good place to start, too.
The Society for American Archaeology's web page.
Plains Anthropological Society
The home page for the Plains Anthropological Society. Links to many regional sites.

USD Anthropology

National Association of State Archaeologists

Chauvet- Pont-d'Arc Cave
A very nicely done page describing the ancient rock art at Chauvet, discovered in France in 1994. It's part of the Great Archeological Sites pages put out by the French Ministry of Culture. While you're at it, check out the page on the Cave at Lascaux, it's a really cleverly done page. You will need the latest version of Adobe Flash for your browser to see this site at its best.
Stanton Drew
New archaeometric evidence on the structure of one of Stonehenge's contemporaries. This is part of a larger site on English archaeology.
