In this section of our website, we highlight archeological features. Archeological features are elements or structures that are nonportable or cannot be easily removed from a site (such as a wall or a post hole).  Archeologists document archeological features extensively in the field to record what will otherwise be destroyed in the process of excavation. The records of these features are often all that is left at the end of an excavation. Excellent record keeping is necessary for these features to provide insight into the archeological record and site formation. Here we will present interesting and important archeological features that have helped archeologists to better or more fully understand the sites on which they were working. Included are photographs and explanations of these features, as well as hand-drawn maps produced by professional archeologists, archeology students, and Arkansas Archeological Society members.
