Archeology and education


Mm, first picture of us working is not so exciting. Just sitting behind a computer, writing stuff. But, the project we are working on, is actually a lot of fun. For the Limburgs Museum in the Netherlands, we are developing educational activities for schoolkids. They can be archaeologists too;  examine sherds, bones and seeds from an imaginary wastepit in 17th century Venlo (southern Netherlands). Were the people who used the pit poor or rich? And what did they wear in Roman times, when Venlo already existed? That’s also part of our work, sewing clothes from past times. Preferably by hand, but we do know how to use a sewingmachine!
