Delphi 2004-2005 (Culture 2000)

What it is about:
Under the patronage of EXARC, three members: Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen (DE), Archeon (NL), Araisi Archaeological Museum Park at the Latvian National History Museum (LV), joined in a 1 year Culture 2000 project called "Delphi".

Website: it is maintained by Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen (DE)

Three pilots have been developed, each in its own environment:
1House of Questions Related to Internet. We will collect and answer the most frequently asked questions which can be answered by archaeology.
2Info points Within the landscape, outside the museums. Info points will be set up by which the environment is involved in archaeology.
3Time islands Within the museums, new ‘time islands’ will be constructed. In Archeon, this is for example an early medieval (re)construction.
This project took place from July 1st 2004 to June 31st 2005.
We will try to give it a follow up with more EXARC members.
