Welcome

One of EXARCs most important assets is the EXARC JOURNAL, all open access. It has four peer-reviewed sections covering EXPERIMENTAL ARCHAEOLOGY, ARCHAEOLOGICAL OPEN-AIR MUSEUM, ANCIENT TECHNOLOGY and INTERPRETATION.
The fifth section of the EXARC Journal is called MIXED MATTERS. It contains book reviews, reports from conferences and events, interviews with personalities from the world of experimental archaeology and portraits of archaeological open-air museums. This section will be regularly updated to bring you topical news.
