Other Meetings and Workshops

Apart from the recurring REARC and EAC conferences, EXARC hosts or cohosts several other one of a kind meetings. These include more formal conferences as well as events in the open-air, always with an international flair.

Please contact us if you like to cohost an event with EXARC. Events in any of our four themes are welcome: archaeological open-air museums, experimental archaeology, ancient technology and interpretation. 

Upcoming Meetings

2020 November - Workshop Weekend, Wilhelminaoord


Ever wanted to learn how to weave, make glass beads or carve spoons? Now is your chance. November 6-8, EXARC organises a workshop weekend in the Netherlands. This is especially geared towards those working with ancient techniques, in experimental archaeology, but also in live interpretation.

EXARC will offer a host of different workshops to choose from, and if you like you can learn something new every day. The weekend will take place in Wilhelminaoord, in a large hostel-like building with enough class rooms and in the back yard a prehistoric village. This is the perfect place for both indoor and outdoor teaching of ancient technology. We will follow all Covid-19 measures in place at that time but technically have place for about one hundred participants...

2020 November - Archaeological Approaches to the Study of the Potter’s Wheel, Amsterdam (NL)

Co-organised by
University of Amsterdam (NL)
University of Hradec Králové (CZ)

The recent past has witnessed a flowering of scholarship explicitly addressing the way that individuals, communities, and societies responded to the introduction of the pottery wheel. In region after region, period after period, existing potting traditions were adjusted, altered, supplanted, or otherwise changed as potters negotiated with the different practices that this technological device enabled.
