Thanks to the support of the Skoda Auto Trade Union, the youth group Altamira started building an archaeological open air museum. Their motto is “find out who you are in a struggle with nature”. The Youth Association itself was founded in 1985.
About 140 pupils execute experiments under supervision of 20 adults at this most important site for youth and experimental archaeology in the Czech Republic. Education and experiment in one go has never been so clear as here.
They have built nine dwellings, among which a Celtic grubenhaus & workshop shelters, they planned agricultural fields and done pottery experiments, and worked with glass, bronze and iron, to name just a few.
