At the same time it promotes the usage of experiments in archaeology, actively educates in their proper utilisation, supports its members during experimentation and encourages them to publish the obtained results.


Main activities of the Center for Experimental Archaeology are directed towards experimental testing of archaeological theories and hypothesis. In order to achieve the set objectives it gathers professionals and amateurs from various fields and uses their diverse knowledge during the experimentation. Experiments include conceptual or theoretical (re)constructions of ancient structures or artefacts with detailed documentation of the processes of their construction, usage or decomposition. As the main part of the set goals represents the active promotion of experimental archaeology, the organisation independently or in cooperation with different institutions participates in the organization of seminars, workshops and popular events.
