Experimental Archaeology encompasses controlled scientific experiments, as well as a vast array of ancient crafts, living history groups and educational activities for example in archaeological open-air museums. Although an archaeological experiment must always answer a specific research question, the experiences gained during non-repeatable activities can be of great value and should always precede controlled experimentation. When results are related back to the archaeological record, the value of Experimental Archaeology is evident, as the information gained would be impossible to obtain from solely examining original artefacts.
EXARC includes several higher education centres in its membership. These universities and other adult education facilities offer a wide diversity of courses on material culture, ancient technology and experimental archaeology. We are working on a full list of the universities across the world and wish to list them as well. The groups, associations and foundations who are EXARC member and work with experimental archaeology are also listed on this map. Each is represented with a short story, an exact address and their official website for up to date information.
Note: EXARC Members are marked with a red balloon.
