May 20th - 25th, 2009
Not even 2 months after the Forum in Italy, there was another large event of liveARCH. The Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen (DE) (www.pfahlbauten.de) organised "H8 - Eight countries present Living History" at the Lake Constance. It started off with a 2 day conference about living history and events with speakers like Prof. Dr. Mehler (DE), Mr. Piotrowski (PL) and Mr Steiner (CH).
The following weekend a large event was staged at 3 different locations in Unteruhldingen. Over 300 living history re-enactors settled here and demonstrated their 'period' of history. Among them were groups from Germany, like gladiators of Dr Junkelmann, the Celtic Group Carnyx but each of the liveARCH museums had brought their own little group, meaning there were as well Vikings, Iron Age Scots and a Hungarian Migration Period group with their yurt.
There was much PR attention, both on line, in printing and on TV.
