Archeohotspot

Tekst ontbreekt nog

In the Flumenzaal up in the western tower chamber, you can test your own skills as an archaeologist at our ArcheoHotspot. Here, archaeology comes alive, with real excavated artefacts from in and around Utrecht and a chance to personally contribute to archaeological research! Help classify and reassemble earthenware shards or bring along finds from your own garden to identify. Our team of enthusiastic volunteers are always ready to inform and explain. They can also help you make an official report of archaeological finds. This chamber also features two more time windows, showing 3D reconstructions of buildings inside the Roman castellum ramparts. The ArcheoHotspot is open to the public every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon until 4 pm.

ArcheoHotspot is an initiative of the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam. The ArcheoHotspot at Museum Hoge Woerd works closely with Landschap Erfgoed Utrecht (regional landscape heritage conservation alliance) and the AWN society for volunteers in archaeology. If you would like to get involved as a volunteer archaeologist at the ArcheoHotspot, send an email to: museum@castellumhogewoerd.nl.
