Ancient Technology is research & execution of ancient techniques which we know through archaeology. It is presenting crafts & techniques we know from the past, purely as technique. It is not costumed interpretation and no experimental archaeology either. With ancient technology, we always keep the context of time & space. Ancient Technology is replication or reconstruction: the goal is a tangible product. In Experimental Archaeology, testing a hypothesis is the core activity; the action stands central together with the information documented from it. These activities must always be reproducible under the defined conditions. However, many public demonstrations such as bronze casting, iron smelting or stone and bone processing are Ancient Technology.
