Since the start of the season 2014 in the Stone Age Park in Albersdorf in the end of march 2014 there are new "activity stations" in use, where the visitors inside the Stone Age house reconstruction of Rastorf could try out their own experiences, capacities and abilities in "prehistoric" skills and handicraft techniques. At 9 educational stations the visitors could work f. e. with stone, textile material, wood and earthen colours; this stations are also accessible and usable for handicapped persons (because of their height etc.). In cooperation with the designer Volker Heesch from Barlterneuendeich and the archaeologists Birte Meller and Tosca Friedrich from the Archaeological Institute of the University of Hamburg (as experts for traditionals skills and experimental archaeology) this innovative and totally new developed stations could be realized in the frame of the Workpackage 4 (Skills) of the OpenArch-project.
"At the moment we are evaluating the use and the educational effects of this activity stations on our guests", says Dr. Rüdiger Kelm, the Managing Director of the Archaeological-Ecological Centre Albersdorf. The results will be communicated on the following conferences to the OpenArch-colleagues and will event. give inspiration for their work in their museums. And if this stations are successful there are already existing new ideas for more stations ... Some of the (motivating) information-posters from the stations you can find as attachment below!
