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.

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.
