Just a short note on the spelling of the field. The British spelling is "archaeology" and is widely used in the US as well as in the UK. The American spelling, "archeology", seems to be used only by the US government and Texas. If you do a search on a search engine using the archeology spelling, you will find a lot of the paranormal, and wacky books using that spelling. Forbidden Archeology (a book) is my favorite for an example.
SWA has a great site with archaeology news, tools, and a job board. They also put out a newsletter called "Got Caliche?" that carries archaeology news from all over the world.

The Archaeology Channel allows the user to view archaeology videos in streaming media. You really need a fast connection for this (a 56K modem or a DSL line). I think that it is a wonderful mix of archaeology and modern technology. Though, IMHO, they need more historical archaeology videos...

Welcome to the Archaeology Channel
One thing to keep in mind about this blog. My first love is historical archaeology (which is obvious since I run the historical archaeology discussion list, HISTARCH). So I will be posting a lot of those sites. Also, I run an underwater discussion list, SUB-ARCH, so you will find a lot of underwater archaeology pages here as well.
