During the weekend of 21-22 december 2013, a bell was cast for the monastery in Archeon. Bringing together ancient crafts and modern presentation methods, the bell was cast by professionals as part of ongoing processes to improve and expand the visitor experience of the Middle Ages in Archeon.

Half a year later, 21 june 2014, the bell was placed in its holder and officially sanctified by a priest, before being put to use thereafter. The 'klokkestoel' (construction that holds the bell) was produced by Archeon staff for the purpose. One year later, on the 21st of june 2015, the event was commemorated in Archeon. At this time an informative sign was also placed next to the location.
