Big picture. Net neophytes can find their bearings with this Web “field guide” from a special issue of Antiquity on electronic archaeology. The article reviews links to virtual libraries, mail lists, museums, society home pages, and more. intarch.ac.uk/antiquity/electronics/champion.html

Hominid trail. Part of a site that counters creationist claims, Fossil Hominids reviews the evidence on questions such as whether Peking Man was an ape and the significance of human brain size. The wealth of information here includes background on key fossils, drawings and photos, scientists' biographies, references, and lots of paleoanthropology links. www.talkorigins.org/faqs/fossil-hominids.html

Cave art cache. Although RockArtNet's design is confusing, the site's directory of links is worth exploring for everything from a site on Egyptian monuments to photos of petroglyphs from the U.S. Southwest. Check the popular Web Board for new rock art offerings. www.rupestre.net/rockart

Dig it? For the latest on digs around the world that are looking for workers—both volunteer and paid—take a peek at Archaeological Fieldwork Opportunities. www.sscnet.ucla.edu/ioa/afs/testpit.html
