2017 April - Tenth Experimental Archaeology Conference EAC10, Leiden (NL) - Excursion
The Conference excursion will take us to Eindhoven and Vlaardingen. We leave 8:30h by coach from Leiden and will be back shortly before 19:00h. Lunch, coffee & tea are all included.
The Prehistorisch Dorp in Eindhoven is one of the oldest
The second stop is at Broekpolder Vlaardingen, near the Rotterdam harbours. Here we will get coffee / tea. We will visit a large park where one plans an with buildings from all periods of the local past. The first building, a house, was built in close cooperation with Leiden University. Colleagues from university will explain all about that, but equally important is the story about this unique initiative: it is coming from the local population itself, a community initiative. At this moment, only volunteers are involved, and many of them are very active. Vlaardingen shows how a museum can be successful by being relevant to the local people.
You will get all of this including travel and for only 40 EUR!
