From the UNC University Library:
Over many decades, scientists at UNC’s Research Laboratories of Archaeology (RLA) have collected more than 8 million artifacts, mostly from sites in North Carolina. Now, as the RLA prepares to celebrate its 75th anniversary, it is making information about those pottery fragments, tools, and other relics of earlier lives available to researchers anywhere.
Search the North Carolina Archaeological Collection is the result of a collaboration between the Labs and UNC’s University Library. Librarians working with the RLA converted previously internal records into a fully searchable online guide.
The catalog also contains photographs of the items whenever possible. This capability taps into a collection of some 60,000 images that the RLA placed in the Carolina Digital Repository, UNC Library’s online repository that preserves the work of University researchers
