Archaeologists dig Hot Springs’ history
Professional and amateur archaeologists have spent weeks unlocking clues below the surface that link the present-day Hot Springs area to a colorful past.

“The history of this area is really important to the people here, and we want to record the pieces of history that still remain before the area is totally developed and the information is gone forever,” said Tim Mulvihill, station archaeologist with the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith.
