Archaeology Gaming June 15, 2016

Via The Dice Tower, I learned of this archaeology game:

It seems to me that either the game as it exists, or a variation on it, could have some pedagogical value. At GenCon last year, I participated in a game demonstration simulating excavation of prehistoric human fossils and artifacts.

Thoughts? Have any professors of archaeology and related subjects used gaming to teach?

    Playing this game could be a “culminating activity” for a unit on how antiquities go from the excavation site to the marketplace/museum. The unit could include many things from a field trip, to a skype interview with an actual antiquities trader. It would be appropriate for any “antiquities” related discipline.
