This entry aims to briefly review the position of roads and their ethnographic study within the history of sociocultural anthropology since the emergence of the discipline. It reveals the paradoxical relationship that anthropology had with roads for most of its history and it touches upon the turn toward roads and more generally the study of infrastructures within the discipline.
