Making prehistoric clothing for bronze age and iron age period

Date: 
Sunday, 2 August, 2015 to Tuesday, 4 August, 2015
Organised by: 
Responsible: 
Hein Klompmaker
Number of Participants / Visitors / Audience: 
10 participants and 200 visitors

In spring and summer 2015 we made clothing for Bronze and Iron Age including jewelry so we can make the prehistoric farmers more representative for the public.

Living history will be more important at the Hunebedcentrum. Especially in 2015 after finishing the prehistoric houses. We like to learn from our partners what kind of clothing they used and how to reproduce it.

Winter 2015 the volunteers started with gathering the information about furniture, tools, pottery and more.
From spring 2015 during volunteer days visitors can see how the products are made, volunteers are given the opportunity to learn skills from experts.
First workshops are given in June and July.
The next workshop is planned at the start of August.
