Cinotto joins archeological research station

Chelsea Cinotto has joined the Archeological Survey Research Station at Henderson State University as archeological assistant.

Cinotto previously worked at the Oklahoma Archeological Survey, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, and Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. She earned a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Oklahoma, and an M.A. in archaeology from the University of Reading in England.

The Archeological Survey’s Henderson office is tasked with researching the archeology of west-central Arkansas, teaching anthropology courses at the university, engaging in community outreach, and working with the public to preserve Arkansas heritage.

“Chelsea is already contributing to this effort by mapping a cemetery in Hot Springs, designing an exhibit for Arkansas Archeology Month, and working with students and volunteers during weekly Archeology Lab Days at the Henderson Survey’s research station,” said Dr. Mary Beth Trubitt, archeologist for the research station.

She said interested community members are invited to participate in the weekly lab days held on most Thursdays from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Contact the Survey at 870-230-5463 or go to for more information.
