Arkology è un triplo CD reggae/dub di Lee Perry e The Upsetters, prodotto da Lee "Scratch" Perry contenente produzioni del cosiddetto periodo Black Ark e pubblicato in Gran Bretagna dall'etichetta Island Records nel 1997.

Il disco contiene materiale registrato nel periodo compreso tra il 1972 e il 1976 presso i mitici Black Ark studios, gli studi di registrazione di Lee Perry, teatro di molte produzioni innovative; si tratta principalmente di canzoni uscite in precedenza solo su vinile (sette o dodici pollici) e quasi esclusivamente nel mercato giamaicano e cantate e suonate dal gruppo di artisti che gravitava all'epoca intorno agli studi di registrazione di Perry, artisti come Max Romeo, The Meditations, Junior Murvin, Jah Lion, The Congos, autori degli album più innovativi e sperimentali della musica giamaicana dell'epoca.
