Welcome two new partners in OpenArch

At the third OpenArch meeting, in Modena in April 2012, we were finally able to meet with the two new OpenArch partners in person: representatives from Viminacium, Serbia and from the University of Exeter, UK came over to meet. In preparing their participation to OpenArch, the Management Team had already met them, but none of the partners knew either Exeter or Viminacium...

OpenArch complete again with 11 partners

When last year two partners dropped out of OpenArch (see here and here for more details), it was up to the Management Team to find replacing partners. We have spoken with over a dozen seriously interested museums and in December we paid a visit to two of them. Now, early spring we can gladly announce most paperwork is behind us and the OpenArch Partnership is complete again...

Open Archaeology, a world to discover

There are plenty archaeological open-air museums out there, and plenty of literature on experiments – too much to keep up really. Thanks to OpenArch, a Culture Project running until 2015, we are happy to present you a world to discover: Open Archaeology website. We have pulled some important archives, previously accessible at publicarchaeology.eu and updated the information. We have spent much work on a better search engine and other programming...

Partner Search for the OpenArch Project in Full Swing

When the OpenArch Project had lost two partners, both for good reasons, it was decided to try and find at least one, preferably two new partners. One should best be from one of the new EU Member states and one should be good at experimental archaeology, not necessarily an archaeological open-air museum. Our search, led by our operational manager, led us to contact many EXARC members...

EXARC JOURNAL Digest 2011 out now

EXARC is growing to reach a wider audience and we get ever more good articles to publish. Therefore we have decided to change EuroREA into the EXARC Journal. Starting from 2012 the EXARC Journal is moving online and will be published three times a year, something which would not be possible do in print, and will reach beyond the boundaries of Europe. The online edition will be accompanied by the magazine EXARC JOURNAL Digest...
