Quick Navigational Tips

When you first start up Excavating Occaneechi Town, you are presented with a Main Menu that has 10 buttons. The two buttons labeled Getting Started and Archaeology Primer represent sections that contain helpful information about using this CD-ROM; the other eight buttons represent the main "chapters" of the report. More information, including "A Tour of the Software," can be found in the on-line help under "Contents." This can be accessed by running the software and either pressing the F1 key or selecting Help | Contents from the menu bar.

Here are a few tips about using this report and some information about its organization that may make the use of it much more enjoyable.

  • The text in Excavating Occaneechi Town is divided into chapters, articles, and pages. Chapters can be accessed from the Main Menu, articles within each chapter are selected from the labeled tabs across the top of the chapter screen, and article pages appear in a list at the left side of the screen within each article. Chapters can also be found under the Go To option in the menu bar.
  • You can find information about excavation contexts either visually, by clicking on the maps in the Excavations chapter, or by name, by selecting Choose a Context on the same screen with the map or on the menu under Go To | Choose a Context.
  • Information about excavation contexts is divided into three screens. The Master screen contains the name, type, dimensions, and location of the context, along with maps and photographs. The Description screen contains a description of the context. Finally, the Artifacts screen lists all of the artifacts recovered from the excavation context.
  • The Back button in the menu bar lets you return to the previous page at any time. Also, under Go To | History is a list of the last ten pages that you have visited.
  • You can use keyboard shortcuts when reading the text sections. Use the up and down arrows and the Page Up and Page Down buttons to move the text up and down. Use Control-Page Up and Control-Page Down to change pages, and use the right and left arrows or the tab key to move between articles. (See Keyboard Shortcuts in the on-line help for more information.)
