Hands-on archaeology


In May and June this year, citizens of the town of Schenefeld in Schleswig-Holstein have the opportunity to carry out themselves small excavations in their town and even on their own estate. The event is part of a citizen science project initiated by the communication platform of the cluster. 
Under the supervision of archaeologists everyone interested can participate in digging small pits of one square metre in residential areas, which will lead to new archaeological finds. Since the duration of the excavations is limited to two days, participants will experience the entire process from the beginning to the end.  
This will be the first citizen science project of this kind in Germany. 

Detailed information (in German) is available on the leaflet. (Downloadlink)
