This website represents a Virtual Museum of 3D artifacts selected from the collections at the Hampson Archeological Museum State Park in Wilson, Arkansas. We will continue to add additional artifacts to this site through 2009. The Hampson Museum contains an extraordinary collection of American Indian objects, largely made some 350 to 600 years ago at the location now called the “Nodena Site,” near modern day Wilson. You can "Browse the Collection" where you will view 3D representations and photos of these objects, download 3D data for your own use, and read artifact descriptions provided by archaeologist, Dr. Bob Mainfort of the Arkansas Archeological Survey.

This museum uses the latest science - 3D laser scanning and visualization - to bring to the Hampson collection to a new, wider audience. For more information about the project and the technology, visit the About the Project section. There is also a 3D re-creation of the Nodena Site circa 1500 as well as information on Dr James Hampson and the Nodena archeological site. We hope you enjoy your virtual visit and that this encourages you to visit the Hampson Museum located in Wilson!
