Project "Mesolithic Living" in the Stone Age Park Dithmarschen in Albersdorf
In summer 2015 the
The acitivites and outputs (used tools and established structures) were scientifically documented und the supervision of Dr. Linda Hurcombe by archaeologists from the Archaeological Department of the University of Exeter, England, as partner of the OpenArch-project. The scientific results will be published by EXeter, the detailed documentation will be published by the Stone Age Park in form of a magazine and a brochure.
The aim of the project was to reconstruct the everyday life of hunter- and gatherers of Mesolithic Northern Europe around 5 000 BC by doing an authentic as possible life experiment with skilled re-enactors and epxerimental archaeologists, in order to gain a new type of insight of how life might have been at that time.
The active participants came to Albersdorf from different countries like Denmark, England, Finland, Italy, Norway and Germany and gave the project a very special international flair.
A shorter (ca 2 weeks) "Mesolithic Living" project is planned for the summer 2016 in Albersdorf.
