Gladiatorenschule Trier e.V. - Lvdvs Treverorvm (DE)

Based on the current archaeological findings and the knowledge of various martial arts, we reconstruct, train and demonstrate the gladiator fights of antiquity.

We believe that gladiatorship was anything but an undemanding slaughter. It was a martial art with the presentation of Virtus "Roman virtues" at the highest level. This level is our goal! We have the claim, to learn what the art the gladiator was about and strive to perfection when it comes to being a roman fighter. It is our intention to teach the knowledge we accumulate - cause we believe, that only be understanding our past, we can forge our future.

Indian Students’ and Teachers’ Perceptions and Attitudes to Archaeological Content in History Textbooks

Seema Shukla Ojha (IN)
History is a record of past events, activities, situations, and processes. As a subject, it helps students in understanding not only who they are and where they came from, but it also offers them an opportunity to make informed decisions about present issues and future developments. History also teaches responsible citizenship, and develops critical thinking and problem-solving skills...

Funded in 2014, the association co-operates with the city of Blaustein in the development of an archaeological park on the UNESCO World Heritage site in Ehrenstein near Ulm, Germany. Ehrenstein is one of the 111 sites of prehistoric pile dwellings around the Alps that were recognised as World Heritage by the UNESCO in 2011. It is unique in that it is the only site in a river valley, it is the only site north of the Danube, and the only site where special limestone discs were discovered. The Neolithic village existed for about 80-100 years in the 4th millennium B.C and is seen as representing the Schussenrieder culture.

Taking Archaeological Concepts outside the Social Science Class in Indian Schools

Smriti Haricharan (IN)
In Indian classrooms, social sciences receive disproportionately less attention than natural sciences and mathematics (Dahiya, 2003; Lall and House, 2005; Roy, 2017). History features within the social science textbooks in India, and is perceived as boring and uninteresting by school children (Roy, 2017; Dahiya, 2003); archaeology is taught as part of the history lessons and is most often not seen as...

RAUZWI - Lebendige Archäologie Mittelweser e.V. (DE)

Member of EXARC
Yes

It was an extraordinary stroke of luck when in 1953 an extensive burial ground was discovered on the Heidberg, a sand dune in the border area between Liebenau and Steyerberg, Germany. Here, the population of the surrounding settlements buried their relatives in the period from the 4th to the 9th century AD.

For more than thirty years, albeit intermittently, excavations have taken place there. More than 500 body and fire graves were uncovered and documented. It was only thanks to this meticulous archaeological research that it was possible to learn about the life of the inhabitants at that time. Written records from this region are not known for that period.
