2021 March: 12th Experimental Archaeology Conference EAC12, World Tour - Exhibition on Experimental Archaeology

Parallel to the EAC World Tour the MAMUZ and EXARC initiate an exhibition on Experimental Archaeology around the world.

This is a touring exhibition and will start in Austria at the MAMUZ Schloss Asparn/Zaya in March 2021. The exhibition aims to portrait the diversity and the wide range of Experimental Archaeology around the world, its background and the current developments. It shall cover a wide spectre of materials, working techniques and approaches. 

MAMUZ Schloss Asparn/Zaya is Lower Austria’s competence centre for Prehistory, Historical Archaeology and Experimental Archaeology. The permanent exhibition offers an overview of the cultural history of Eastern Austria from the Palaeolithic Age to the beginning of the modern era using original exhibits and, in addition, fully functional models of prehistoric residential buildings and workshops from the Stone Age to the Iron Age at the adjacent open-air site.
