SCA Journal

The SCA Journal, published semiannually since 1978, features scholarly articles on commercial archeology. Richly illustrated, this full-color publication focuses on popular roadside topics such as auto trails, historic highways, diners, motels, movie theaters, tiki culture, mid-century architecture and gas stations. The Journal also enjoys taking the backroads, including articles on more obscure topics such as historic ravel journals, trading posts, roadside rest areas, shopping centers, auto hood ornaments, and the minority experience on the road. The SCA Journal has been designed by noted roadside historian and graphic designer Brian Butko since 1994.
