In ArchaeoMadness 2019, 16 archaeologists entered the tournament in a single elimination bracket. Each day participants voted for their favorite archaeologist in head-to-head competitions between two individuals. The winning archaeologist from each matchup moved on to the next round. This was repeated in each round until the championship.
