Archaeology Roadshow


2016 Archaeology Roadshow

Saturday June 4th

10am - 3pm

1 block from the PSU Farmers Market



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. 

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.

Getting to the Archaeology Roadshow:

The Portland Streetcar stops on the Park blocks, Eastbound, at SW Park and Market and Westbound at SW Park and Mill. After disembarking the Streetcar walk south along the park 2-3 blocks and turn right on Harrison at the PSU Library (this area is pedestrian only). Continue along The Walk of Heroines and Hoffman Hall is directly in front of you.

Street parking may be limited due to the nearby Portland Farmers Market. There is PSU garage parking on SW 12th between Market and Montgomery. It is $5 for Saturday parking.  Exit the structure on SW 12th and turn right to walk south on SW 12th. Turn left onto SW Montgomery (this area is pedestrian only).
