[MSARP Virtual Slide Show]
 [Dorset Carving]
!!IMPORTANT-Read This Before Continuing!!
The following presentation is a virtual slide show based upon archaeological research carried out in the Canadian High Arctic during the past five years. The show is under periodic revision and new images can be expected on a regular basis (look for the NEW slide tag below). A high-speed link is a must and an 800x600 display is also recommended. The show consists of large images so you should expand your viewing window as much as possible (you should hide your toolbar buttons now).  The show is not interactive, all you have to do is sit back and watch. This is an experimental presentation so comments are welcome.
