EXARC Journal Digest 2021 out now

It is not that in Corona times the world stood still! Following the successful Journal we published in November 2020, we now publish annually a digest of the articles we have previously published online. Our new EXARC Journal Digest cover 112 pages in full colour, with a great variety in reviewed articles, mixed with a good number of book and conference reviews.

So, if you like to know the latest developments in experimental archaeology and open-air museums, you should read the EXARC Journal Digest. Unfortunately, this Digest can be only a taster of what is on offer in our online EXARC Journal. We had to choose from nearly 70 articles from all over the world and wide ranging topics including investigations into textile and pottery manufacture, reporting on smelting experiments, reconstructions of ancient bows and Roman gold washing amongst many others. Articles cover different corners of the world. 

The EXARC Journal is sent to all EXARC members and will also be available at our upcoming conference in May 2022 at Butser’s in the UK. Non-members can read the full versions of all articles online at

This edition of the EXARC Journal is dedicated to Hans-Ole Hansen.
