EXARN (Experimental Archaeology Newcastle) is a recently established PGR led Experimental Archaeology research group within the Archaeology Department at Newcastle University. EXARN, affiliated with the Cluster for Interdisciplinary Artefact Studies (CIAS), promotes the study of material culture, archaeo-materials and ancient technologies through EA.

Its aim is to bring together researchers employing EA and to encourage, aid and inform those interested in this research method, students and academics alike. EXARN's experimental projects are mainly related to the members' own PG research. EXARN organised the 1st Annual Experimental Archaeology Student Symposium, hosted this year at Newcastle University, intended as a completely student-led, student-focused conference.

The Viking age summer markets were full of life when dealing with large and small items - from the Norwegian quarry to Afghan carnelian beads. But trading places were also a concentration of values ​​and therefore interesting for robbers. The king's men put an end to this - the merchants paid treasure to the king and the king's men made sure of the market and the free trade.
