EXARC Conferences, Meetings and Workshops

The virtual world is very important for EXARC, but nothing beats meeting other members in person - people with similar professional interests and backgrounds. EXARC regularly organises conferences offering a platform from which to present yourself and your activities / research, but also a place for more informal exchanges of experience. Those conferences and meetings are open for both members and non members. Besides our own conferences, EXARC often co-hosts conferences or sessions in many different countries.

2020 March - Documentation Strategies in (Archaeological) Open-Air Museums, Berlin (DE)

Co-organised by

There are probably about 3,000 archaeological house reconstructions around the world, most of them in (archaeological) open-air museums. This means we have already a huge amount of information and experience “locked-in” these buildings. The same is true for all other craft activities carried out in open-air museums. A lot of knowledge relating to crafts is known as tacit knowledge, meaning difficult to transfer using words. It is learned through experience.
