We are gearing up for the next Archaeology Roadshow, set for Saturday, June 4th, 2016 at Hoffman Hall Portland State University Campus, 1833 SW 11th Ave. The Archaeology Roadshow is organized by PSU's Anthropology Department, the Public Archaeology class, and dozens of community partners.

This year's theme is the 'Archaeology of Dwellings'. Through interactive exhibits, displays and demonstrations we will explore our heritage as seen through the lens of "dwellings".  Presentations will be hosted by archaeologists and other professionals and community members with local and traditional knowledge from universities, federal and state agencies, tribes, archaeology companies, and non-profit organizations. We will showcase heritage of dwellings in all its forms--drawing on archaeology, knowledge of historic buildings and places, oral traditions and historic documents. Besides our interactive exhibits, a panel of experts in archaeology, paleontology and geology will be on hand to identify the personal artifacts visitors bring. Stone, bone, woven, plant and historical items are welcome.

We hope to see you there!
