New Web Site

I am pleased to announce...

Our brand new web site! Dun dun dun!

This new site is built on the Drupal framework (really fancy stuff) so that as we grow, we can add incredible interactivity and functionality to it.. things that will give you, our viewers, a better experience.

We hope you come visit us again and again, to learn about the lands around you, and to watch our web presence develop, bringing distant history into the age of technology.

The designer of the site, Jamie Crannell, volunteers a lot of time providing tech services and photography to the cause. You can find some very interesting stuff on his own web site, LifeOnTheShore.com, and if you have any technical questions or issues with this site, you can get in touch with him at www.crannellweb.com/get-in-touch/
