Erik Pierson

Erik Pierson's YouTube channel Retail Archaeology covers dead malls, retail history, urban exploration, and retro video games & toys. Erik has been playing video games since he can remember and collecting them for over 20 years. His love of video games fueled his passion for urban exploration and filming dead malls and abandoned places. He discovered urban exploration is very much like playing a real life video game! This lead to the creation of the Retail Archaeology channel. The Retail Archaeology channel has also covered things such as video game and toy hunting, vintage electronics, and many other retro related topics
