WELCOME to Excavating Occaneechi Town, an archaeological site report on CD-ROM. This report describes and interprets the buried remains of Occaneechi Town, a small but important village of the Occaneechi tribe that stood on the banks of the Eno River in North Carolina at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Also known as the Fredricks site, this village was excavated by archaeologists from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in order to study how European colonization of North America affected Native Americans.

Excavating Occaneechi Town is unique, not just because it is an electronic publication but because it contains a wealth of visual and descriptive information not usually available in an archaeological site report. In fact, it is a complete, full y searchable record of all the excavated contexts and recovered artifacts from Occaneechi Town. In addition to describing the archaeology of the site and interpreting what was found, this report contains more than 1,000 full-color photographs and maps, as well as detailed information on more than 100,000 artifacts. The report also contains an archaeological teaching tool called the Electronic Dig, which allows students to design their own research strategies and "re-excavate" Occaneechi Town.

Here are quick tips from the booklet which accompanies the CD-ROM:
