2nd Conference of OpenArch

The Borger Meeting, 3rd - 7th October 2011 was a great success with almost 100 participants from about 10 countries. The Borger Meeting was to discuss new ways to reach the public with archaeology. The meeting combined participants from OpenArch, Zeitgeist and EXARC and was also visited by members of the Dutch network VAEE.

The programme was well designed and executed, a big thanks to the Hunebedcentrum. The atmosphere among the participants was very good. It is amazing to see how far we got with all these archaeological open-air museums in EXARC. See OpenArch website - report from the II meeting - for more information.
