ArkaeoGame - the games area of ArkeoTopia

The ArkaeoGame of ArkeoTopia, full of ideas for an evening of fun

The ArkaeoGame section of ArkeoTopia presents:

  • the next sessions of the Games break organized thanks to our game library specialized in archaeology
  • the results of creations or adaptations of board games and video games designed by the ArkeoTopia team
  • everything related to games and archaeology / cultural heritage

Why an ArkaeoGame?

Role-playing game, a fun tool for discovering archaeologyThe world of games has changed enormously since the 1970s. Today, it's no longer just Monopoly® and Scrabble®. Gaming is more than just a familiar universe; it’s a doorway through to multiple subjects such as history and archaeology while remaining fun thanks to the tricks of game mechanics.

It is in this spirit that ArkeoTopia has developed various projects including a role-playing game project and adaptations of board games that we invite you to discover and try out. So, whether you're a gamer or not, whether alone or with family or friends, come and enjoy a uniquely, entertaining experience at the ArkeoTopia Games break.

Where can I find the team?

The friendly and highpowered team at ArkeoTopia will take great pleasure welcoming you to share laughter, profound questions and revelations with games full of atmosphere like Alert on the excavation site of Ideascoveremains and great classics like Memories, the archaeological version of Time's up and many other surprises:

Défendre l'archéologieChampioning the scientific research in archaeology means contributing to a better heritage protection, to healthy and lasting relationships between the various actors of research (professionals, non professionals, citizens, politicians), to an evolution of knowledge and practices specific to archaeological research.

Discover the Spirit of ArkeoTopia and follow our actions in relation to the defense of archaeological research and more broadly of the SHS (Social and Human science) in France, in Europe and on the international stage.

Facilitate the orientation of young people and help those already on the path to find their way through the maze of courses and opportunities.

Illustration d'une mission ArkéoTopia en Nouvelle-CalédonieSearching, and even more importantly... finding... or more precisely, creating new knowledge of human technical cultures brings together the last two activities of ArkéoTopia. Without chronological or geographical limits, with ArkéoTopia the subjects can relate to France as well as the international, touching as much upon the first tools of the Paleolithic era as with the contemporary remains dear to industrial archeology.

In this section, you’ll find the research activities specific to the association: presentation of research projects, calls for research, survey reports, excavation reports, inventories ... as well as archaeological publications from our partners and stakeholders in the research we support.
