Exhuming Atari: archaeology and the video game graveyard

Andrew Reinhard led the team of archaeologists who uncovered the games Atari buried in the desert in 1983. He will discuss how the games were found, how the team excavated them, and will show what was really buried in the landfill.

See unpublished images and video of the dig-site, and discover the fate of the exhumed games from the Atari graveyard. Learn why this is archaeology, and what we can learn about digital heritage of the 20th and 21st centuries.
