Dr. Frank Schambach and Leslie Jewell published this booklet and collection of slides for the Akansas Humanities Council and the Arkansas Archeological Survey in 1990. With permission, the text of the original booklet is reproduced here page for page in black typeface. Page numbering here corresponds to original page numbers; some pages containing only ink line drawings are omitted and thus page numbers will be missing. The original text is modified by the addition of slides and commentary in red typeface from a slide collection, also prepared by Dr. Schambach. Introductory pages with roman page numbering have been moved to the end so that students can begin with page one. Each page has a link enabling students to look up a definition of a word as it is used in "Crossroads." Definitions are simple so that even elementary level students can read the text. In addition, each page has a link to a set of study questions and a link to related archeological sites on the Internet.
Located at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, this Internet site describes the work and resources of this agency which has Station Archeologists at nine locations across the state. The site has Educational Resources valuable for classroom use in the study of the Indian past of Arkansas. There is also underdevelopment First Encounters: The Contact Period in the Mississippi Valley, a project to create a CD-ROM about initial European-Indian interactions, which features historical materials and the use of English, French, and Spanish to teach languages. Excerpts from this project are available now for viewing online.
