Archaeology Roadshow 2018 -- Portland

Free event at the Portland State University campus!

This year's theme is 'the Archaeology of Change.' Fundamentally, archaeologists study the ways people, societies, and environments change through time: within a year, over decades, centuries, or even millennia. Sometimes cultures persist in the face of environmental upheavals or cultural shifts; sometimes they don't. Why in some places and times do once highly-mobile people become sedentary? Why do the food choices people make change or not? Why is change sometimes fast or sometimes gradual? Why do some parts of culture persist (and some parts change)? (Chess is one of our favorite examples... 12th c. chess pieces have been excavated from coastal Scotland!) We can think about change across so many fronts (technology, beliefs and religion, family structure, food) it is mind boggling.

Archaeology Roadshow -- Harney County

Free event in Burns/Hines, OR!

Portland State University is excited to announce that Archaeology Roadshow is going “on the road” again in 2018, with a Roadshow planned for Burns/Hines on June 9, 2018. They hope to take a minimum of five exhibits from the Portland Roadshow along with the professionals and students who created the activities. We're working with archaeologists, heritage specialists and school groups in Harney County to support their creation of activities that promote heritage on the east side of our fair state. They will host a panel of experts to identify the artifacts visitors bring to the event. Scott Thomas (BLM) has graciously and generously agreed to serve as local coordinator of the Harney County event.  

PSU's goal is to use our experience developing the satellite Roadshow in Harney County as a model that could be taken to communities across the state in successive years, as we continue to gain knowledge about best practices (both for Portland events and rural communities) and the financial support becomes secure.
