What experimental archaeology projects will take place this season?

EXARC sometimes gets this question from film companies and recently, from a book author, so we asked our members what experiments they have planned and what to look forward to in 2022!

We received a high number of replies which is uplifting after the last two years. Here are some of the experiments you can expect to see this year:
The Medieval city of Swargas will be looking into the reconstruction of a printing press and diving deeper into culinary experiments. The Stone-Age Park Dithmarschen will bring you life in the Mesolithic and neolithic into the 21st century in two events over the summer. The first phase of the Scottish Crannog Centre’s new project has begun: they will move to a different site and start with replicating a Bronze Age roundhouse. The open-air museum in Hitzacker will offer bronze casting and traditional longbow building workshops this year. At Masamuda, the project “Putting Life into Neolithic Houses” will continue with cooking experiments and reconstructing a dugout using stone-age tools. And at the Araisi Ezerpils Archaeological Park, the reconstruction of Iron Age dwellings which started last year will continue in 2022.

We wish all of our members great success with their experiments and hope to hear more about them soon!
