On 11 November 2016, EXARC filed an application with the EU for support for European networks. The outcome is expected to come in March / April 2017. EXARC will highlight the migration of food and artisan products in the archaeological past (in this case 7500 BC – 1500 AD), showing its relevance for modern times, emphasising our common European past.
