Experimental Archaeology Survey

A colleague of mine is doing PhD research about best practices in experimental archaeology and is looking for people belonging to a research or academic institution or carrying out independent activities.

So if you are a demonstrator, crafter, re-enactor, or professional who works with or in museums or other spaces, you could do my colleague a favour ahd help with her research by filling out the questionnaire here.

I’m curious to see what she will find out – we’ve had a long and spirited discussion a few years ago about the problems of experimental archaeology in open air museums, and the possibility or impossibility to run experiments involving the public. (I’m still convinced that an archaeological experiment, in about 99% of the cases, is not something that you can open up to the public and still run successfully.)
