Steps to Recording a Site
In order to record the location of an archeological site, you should know how to read a county highway map, or a U.S. Geological Survey quadrangle map. These maps show township, range, and section, so that you can record exactly where the site is located.
You then need to record your site on a Site Survey Form. After the site is recorded, a unique site number will be assigned. If you collect a sample of artifacts from the surface of the site, you should write the numbers on the artifacts so they will always be identified with their site.
For assistance in Recording a Site, you can contact an archeologist at the nearest Arkansas Archeological Survey Research Station.
