Prehistoric Weekend

Kind of Event
Market / Fair
Organised by
the Netherlands

Prehistory is often underexposed in history, because this period takes place before the beginning of the historiography. So we do not always know how people lived then, what traditions and customs they had, what they believed or why. But we do know many things, thanks to the objects and other remains that they have left behind. During the Prehistoric weekend we show how we think people lived then. 

If you read this now, you can do something they had not even thought of in prehistory: read and write. We assume that people did communicate with each other via language, but we don't know exactly how. However, humans left behind all  kinds of traces from which we can deduce how they built houses, worked the land, what they ate and what they wore. During this weekend you can see how life was, thousands of years ago!
