EXARC's Privacy Policy

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. In short, every organisation handling personal data in the European Union needs to be clear about what data is stored and how exactly. This includes associations like EXARC. We therefore have put a European Privacy Policy in place, which among others describes how members and delegates to EXARC activities have control on the personal data we process. This includes data from people outside the EU.

The New EXARC Journal Digest is out now and will soon be sent to all 300+ EXARC members. For this Digest we had 28 interesting articles from the two latest issues of the EXARC Journal to choose from and it was not an easy task. We included articles on the reconstruction of a Stone Age baby rattle and re-rolling a mummy as visitor experience or archaeological experiment?

As you know, the Digest is only a taster, so please go to https://exarc.net/journal and see how much more information there is. The full EXARC Journal is open access, as sharing information and experience is one of the main aims of EXARC.

Jacques Tixier (1925-2018)

Born in 1925, Jacques Tixier was one of the biggest masters in stone knapping and in comprehension of lithic technology. Many generations of prehistorians have learnt from his work and contribution to understanding human behavior through the lithic analysis. His dynamic understanding of the history and use of stone and his recognition of the value of the experimental approaches laid the foundation for the modern analytic studies of stone tools. His methodological contributions were one of the best examples of innovation and generosity. Contributions such as “Technologie de la pierre taillée” became the essence of a new generation of researchers that tries to overpass the classic concept of typology, providing new methodological insights.
