Building place for a megalithc monument - 2

In the Park Area of the Archaeological-Ecological Centre Albersdorf (AÖZA) the visitors can experience since autumn 2013 the reconstruction of a building place for a megalithic monument. Now it is not only possible to see how the Stone Age Farmers built such an impressing structure, but the visitor can also try to move one of the neccessary cupstones by himself with this new hands-on station ... This station was opened and presented for the OpenArch-colleagues in september 2013 on occasion of the Conference in Albersdorf.
The AÖZA will evaluate the use, the attraction and the reactions of the visitors at this activity station and will present this for the OpenArch-colleagues in 2014.

In 2014 and 2015 the building place for the megalith has been used for a role play as theatrical presentation for a burial ceremony, how it has could happened in Funnel Beaker time. This event has been very impressive and interesting for our visitors (see attached pictures!).
