Survey (AAS) is a branch of the University of
Arkansas System dedicated to education, preservation and research. There
are eleven AAS research stations located across the state. The UAM station
is located at the University of Arkansas at Monticello and includes Ashley,
Bradley, Chicot, Cleveland, Desha, Drew and Lincoln Counties. The station
has a station archeologist who is responsible for research and public service,
maintains information on sites and projects, and curates collections from the
area. The UAM station archeologist provides a variety of services to the general
public, educational institutions, and state and federal agencies. This often
involves working with amateur archeologists, identifying artifacts, helping
landowners identify archeological remains, providing public lectures, and
writing popular books and flyers about Arkansas archeology. The UAM Station
works closely with the Tunican Chapter of the Arkansas Archeological Society.
