Celebrate the Archaeology
& Heritage of Oregon and Beyond

The 11th annual Archaeology Roadshow, with events held in Portland, Bend, Burns/Hines, and The Dalles, focuses on The Archaeology of Transportation and features dozens of exhibits and activities hosted by archaeologists and heritage specialists , representing universities, tribes, federal and state agencies, companies, and nonprofit organizations.
The Roadshow also invites visitors to bring personal objects (stone tools, pottery, animal bones) they wish to know more about. We’ll have a panel of experts on hand who will help interpret your find. No financial appraisals are given.
This family friendly event gives visitors of all ages the chance to learn more about Oregon’s past and its connections to us today. It is completely free and open to all.
