2015 Guidebook for Live Interpretation in AOAMs

Size: A4, 40 pages

As part of the OpenArch project, Archeon (NL) published a guide on the use of Live Interpretation in Archaeological Open-Air Museums. This booklet is an introduction for museums considering using Live Interpretation, or museums who are already using actors to interpret the past for their visitors.

Central to the concept of the guidebook is the idea that Live Interpretation is one of the best ways to provide both an entertaining and educational experience for museum visitors - both in Archaeological Open-Air Museums and more 'traditional' museums. Contributions from the partners in the OpenArch project as well as experts in the industry provide insights into the ways Live Interpretation can help shape our perception of the past and in extension - of ourselves.
