EXARC at the EAA 2017

The European Association of Archaeologists annual meeting was in 2017 in Maastricht. Attended by about 1,800 archaeologists, this three-day conference consisted of almost 300 sessions, besides the keynote speeches, the excursions et cetera. EXARC supported two sessions, both organised by EXARC members.
The first session, organised by Vasilka Dimitrovska and Marc van Hasselt was titled: “Using Live Interpretation, Living History / Reenactment and Museum Theatre to Interpret Archaeological Heritage”. This included papers from the USA, Hungary and the Netherlands. The second session was organised by Daniël Postma, Chloe Duckworth & Artūrs Tomsons and was titled: Illuminating the past, enlightening the future: experimental archaeology pioneering for societal development? It was more than the usual experimental archaeology session and included presentations from Romania, Latvia and the Netherlands.
There were about a dozen EXARC members present as well as many colleagues who heard about EXARC but are no member yet. We ended the day with a diner for EXARC members and affiliates. Next year: Barcelona!
