9th EXARC meeting

March 11th - 13th, 2005
In Spring 2005, members of EXARC convened for the 9th time, in Foteviken, Sweden. The initiators of this meeting were, besides EXARC, the EU-project BALTIC+, Region Scania, and The EU-project Destination Viking. 34 Participants from 5 countries joined in a two days seminar concerning the mediation of our living historical heritage, in Sweden and the rest of Europe. This to the background of the increasing number of 'living history museums' as well as re-enactment groups. This cultural pattern contributes with new attractions to the international tourist trade. It was discussed how networks like EXARC and Destination Viking could contribute to the mediation of cultural heritage.
