Looking back at the project as a whole

Looking back at the two years of Didarchtik, VAEE (NL) performed an evaluation, which included feedback from almost all Didarchtik partners. VAEE has been instrumental in evaluating each step in the project, for which many thanks. In our manual, prepared by Archäologisches Zentrum Hitzacker (DE), we gathered all information of what we learned during these meetings and are also introducing the institutions who were contributing to our project either by organizing one of the meetings or by being responsible for one of the products. See attachment for the complete 56 pages PDF.

EXARC Marketplace gets a boost

The EXARC marketplace is the showcase for our members’ skills – from ancient crafts to museum management, from education to experimental archaeology.
Willing to take on commissions or consultancy? Need something made for your museum? Advertise here, even if you are no EXARC member.
To bring it to its full potential, EXARC has appointed two volunteers to get as many adverts as we can, bringing the marketplace to life.
The Marketplace is made possible by Didarchtik, one of our Grundtvig Learning Partnerships.

The Marketplace was available from 2011-2013.

Didarchtik cooperation successfully concluded

12-14 June 2012
By mid-2012, the Learning Partnership Didarchtik came to an end with a last workshop, at Butser Ancient Farm in the UK. Many subjects we had touched upon over the previous two years came back on the table – just as needed: this was the moment to look back on our experiences and see if we had learned something.
Besides wrapping up our experiences, it was an extra-long workshop to get to know one of the oldest archaeological open-air museums in the UK, and with an enormous international reputation.

Didarchtik update: Workshop in Val Senales, Ötzi’s hometown

20-23 September 2010, Didarchtik partners met in Val Senales, an idyllic valley in South Tyrol, close to where Ötzi the Iceman was found. Our host was Johanna Niederkofler, director of the archaeological open-air museum in the valley (http://www.archeoparc.it), supported by her enthusiastic staff. Partly thanks to the early snow on the high mountains which had fallen just the day before, the location was the most beautiful in this project so far!

Didarchtik meeting at Bäckedals Folkhögskola, Sveg

14-17 June 2011
The two-year EU project Didarchtik aims is for the participants to visit each other to share experiences on didactics and teaching methods for adults in providing knowledge of ancient crafts and archaeological finds. By mid-June 2011, it was the turn to Bäckedals Folkhögskola to invite. It felt great to get this many curious guests from far away from many countries in Europe.

The third workshop of Didarchtik

The third workshop of Didarchtik was 7-10 April 2011 at the Bachritterburg Kanzach (Germany). It took place under a very good constellation. Compliments to the organisers, speakers, the living history groups and the 20+ participants from 4 countries. The theme was ‘living history’. The setting was a (re)constructed castle tower from the early 14th century. With all official necessities and formalities, the participants were welcomed on Thursday evening by Rudolf Obert, director and the mayor of Kanzach, Mr. Hölz.
