Message #261: From: AzTeC SW Archaeology SIG To: "'Matthias Giessler'" Subject: Archaeology Forum Date: Sun, 18 Aug 96 13:17:00 MST Encoding: 38 TEXT [ J Scott Wood forwarded this message from "CW Host 1" announcing another place for Arch - AOL - ogy on the world-wide web. Since SWA does not use AOL services, we have no idea how well this new forum serves the archaeological community. Archaeologists tend to designate themselves 'professional' or 'avocational.' The word 'amateur' has been discarded. SWA has no idea what the AOL forum host means by the term 'enthusiast.' So.....as with all web sites covering archaeology, professional and avocational archaeologists should pay close attention to and report any mis-use or compromise of sensitive data by site vandals, 'pothunters' and new-age religious charlatans. -- SASIG Ed.] From: JScottWood@aol.com Date: Sun, 18 Aug 1996 03:26:22 -0400 firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Fwd: New Archaeology Forum on AOL! From: CW HOST 1 Hello fellow Archaeologists & Enthusiasts! I wanted you all to know that AOL has just created a whole new forum dedicated soley to ARCHAEOLOGY! It is called the Archaeology Forum (KEYWORD: Archaeology). There you will find message boards on all sorts of archaeological subject matter for you to post in, software archives for you to up-load and download things in, and tons of web links to the coolest archaeological web sites on the internet! Hopefully soon, we will also have a chat room in the forum too where we will hold trivia contests for free online time and also hold various talks on all things great and small! I am a professional archaeologist as well, and I realized that there was no real good place for all of us to go and post our thoughts on various topics, theories, ect., or just a place to gripe or praise a particular project you happen to be working on! Also, a place to hear from other arkies online and see what they are up to. So I got ahold of AOL and they said they would give it a try to see how it flies, so here it is! So check it out and tell all your archy friends and cohorts. If you have any ideas or suggestions on how to make the forum even better, please feel free to e-mail me, CW HOST 1. I will be happy to take your suggestions and give them a try if they are feasable! To keep this forum alive, we have to use it regularly, so go in there and show your support by posting, uploading, downloading and linking! I sure hope you enjoy it! Your servant, -Michael CW HOST 1.
