Podcast: A Ring of Re-enactors

This episode we're having a bit of fun and looking at an alternative kind of living history with two guests from the Middle Earth Re-enactment society. 

Eric Meulemans is based in the USA with an academic background in history and historic preservation. He has worked at various open-air museums, predominantly using his crafting skills in wood and metal, which he has honed through his company, Meuleurgy.

Support Ukraine Network Website

On March 9th we had our first online discussion on 2024 with the Support Ukraine Network (SUN). During the meeting, colleagues from Ukraine shared their open-air museums, and discussed their experiences with managing and maintaining these institutions. Examples include the Kamianets-Podilskyi Historical Museum-Reserve, the Dami Halic Reserve, and the Trakhtemyriv reserve. Discussions and presentations also included themes such as working with children, the use of virtual reality, applying for UNESCO World Heritage status, and how to deal with financial difficulties.
