The Dialogue with Science
Larger trans-national experiments are important, but there must also be a presentation aspect in the experiments, not just the scientific value. The experiments have therefore been defined in cooperation with experimental archaeology experts and universities, so that the experiments of this project add value and are not just replications of previous experiments. Students could be involved in these experiments and maybe include them in their thesis.
Suggested themes could be architecture, pyrotechnics, and , but also intangible heritage aspects like social interaction in the past, role of sexes, child life and everyday life, et cetera.
Two or three large-scale projects should be carried out, and could focus on , , plants & , textiles & looms, architecture and working.
The target group of this Work Package are specialists from Universities, archaeologists, craftspeople and other academic institutions will be involved in this Work Package.
There is also a link to Work Package 3 (reconstructing intangible heritage) and Work Package 4 (skills) in this Work Package, and specialists from Universities and other academic institutions will be involved in these Work Packages. In this Work Package, there will also be an involvement from the EXAR organisation. Execution of each themed should be at several locations within the partnership.
It is important to stress that experimental archaeology is not only about the tangible past, but based on experiments in tangibles, experimental archaeology should also work with the intangible past. Therefore, our constructed history will be documented in the same way as the experiments on tangible heritage.
In this Work Package, we will also look into how experiments can be carried out and used as part of the story telling and demonstrations (Work Package 3 and Work Package 4) for the public.
