The Archaeology Roadshow is hosted each year by the Portland State University Anthropology Department. Here’s how the department breaks down what the show is all about:

“The Archaeology Roadshow is a large-scale public outreach event held on Portland State University campus and in other communities in Oregon, designed to promote stewardship of Oregon’s heritage and educate adults and children about the value of archaeology to all citizens. The fair-like experience brings together community organizations (tribes, federal and state agencies, private companies, avocational organizations), and PSU students and faculty who host hands-on activities that relate to heritage, science, and Indigenous history and contemporary tribal interests in our region.”

Our very own writer Achi Ikeda is going to be delivering a talk for the Roadshow this year, one which is centered on a topic that is very near and dear to all of us here at the site: video games! Achi will be discussing the impact that archaeology has had on video game development over the years and how video games have begun to influence archaeology. We’ll be featuring her writing on the topic over the next couple of days, but if you’d like to experience Achi’s talk for yourself, please hit up this link.

As time passes and video games become more entrenched in academia and academic writing, it’s very interesting to see the connections that people like Achi make as they analyze the medium from different angles. Congrats to Achi on having the opportunity to deliver this talk. We hope that anyone who is interested will register and give this lecture some love.
