As founder and the first chairperson, I represent the WEAG (Workgroup of Experimental Archaeology Groningen). This is a student initiative of the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, founded in January 2019. At this moment, the group has 20 members and is still expanding. At the start, we focused on reconstructing Mesolithic dwellings. We have built two reconstructions and are going to build two (possibly three) more in the coming year. Next to this, we are researching the use of Mesolithic hearth pits, microwear analysis, Bronze Age Tyrrhenian briquetage salt production, and prehistoric beer production.

If you have ideas or questions, feel free to contact me.
