In this reading corner, you can find publications and databases which can be helpful if you are interested in EXARC's themes. Many of these are developed by our members during the course of cooperation projects. Please contact us if there is anything you like to contribute.
The EXARC Experimental Archaeology Collection is an online place for sharing and preserving data and results of experimental archaeology. The collection (with 11,000 titles) is supported by EXARC and hosted by the Digital Archaeological record (tDAR). Originally created by EXARC this is a great resource for students and researchers alike. The collection is open access.
Find the collection here: experimentalarchaeology.net
Did you know there are over 500 archaeological open-air museums worldwide? You will find many of them here. The map also shows you Universities and other Higher Education Centers teaching Experimental Archaeology as well as Living History or Ancient Technology Groups as far as these are EXARC Member. Each one is represented with a short story, an exact address and their official website for up to date information.
The manuals here are all open access, free downloads. Most of them revolve around archaeological open-air museums and the different tasks of their staff: from management to live interpretation, from PR to Craft presentations. They are written by our members, sometimes with help of external specialists.
Before Facebook and Twitter, we had online forums. These have some obvious advantages over social media, for example in the easily accessible archives. Nobody has to reinvent the wheel, information does not go lost. Back in 2005, several friends in Germany decided to start a forum about pre- and protohistory, archaeology and reconstruction. So far, everything is in German.
