A couple of WEB sites that may be of interests to anthropologists - A Noam
Chomsky site at or
you can ftp to

There is also a new database of information of interest to archaeologists

The UCONN ArchNET is a very well designed WEBServer with links to
archaeological information resources by world-wide geographic region, by
topic, by academic department, and by museum/research facilities.

For those physical anthropologists thinking about teaching a course in
human osteology or human anatomy on the Internet, you might want to have a
look at the Whole Frog Project housed on the server at the Lawrence
Berkeley Laboratory in Berkeley, California. The Whole Frog Project is an
attempt to develop accurate extraction and representation of the 3-D
structure of animals: not classical dissection, but elaborate data
collection, analysis and 3-D visualization. Try out the frog dissection at Your net
browser must support forms and online image support. You'll also need color
to make it work properly. Just think, no more long hours in front of a
well-preserved cadaver!
