Archaeology Island consists of 3D virtualizations of archaeological sites investigated by faculty members from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) including a Monongahela Village, a Roman site in Cyprus, an underwater shipwreck, a Maya site in Belize , and the Laurel Hill /Brown farm, that was the site of an antebellum community of former slaves.
Other buildings include The E-Learning Center that was especially designed for inquiring minds, and a Conference /Lecture Center.
Additions to new areas are in the works and will include an area for contributors to show their poster presentations.

On-a-Slant Virtual Village
3D reconstructions of a Mandan Village, circa 1776-1781, located on the grounds of the Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in North Dakota. This interpretation is based on scholarly research about the site, the native population, and the historical era. This reconstruction was created by the North Dakota State University Archeology Technologies Laboratory (ATL).
Mystery of the Bones Exploration (digNubia- Exploring the Science of Archaeology)
In this exploration, you will learn how to determine sex based on skull characteristics and height based on femur length. What else can you learn by examining skeletal remains?
Where am I? [Global Positioning and Archaeology Sites] (digNubia- Exploring the Science of Archaeology)
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a system of 24 satellites that orbit the Earth. This 'tool' is especially useful to locate archaeological sites.
How do we known when? The Technique of Seriation (digNubia- Exploring the Science of Archaeology)
Learn about the Seriation which is a technique archaeologists use to figure out how old an archaeology site is.
How do we Excavate? Plan an Excavation (digNubia- Exploring the Science of Archaeology)
In this game, you are the archaeologist -- you decide what tools to buy, which experts to hire, and how to dig. This excavation simulation game was developed by Learning Sites for the digNubia- Exploring the Science of Archaeology project.
