Neolithic settlement reconstructed

Neolithic settlement reconstructed | Neolithic | Scoop.it
A neolithic settlement in Biskupin, north central Poland, is being reconstructed with the aid of EU funding.

The project is being carried out as an extension of the Open Air Archaeological Museum at the site.

“Biskupin's archaeological reserve is not only one of the most famous museums of its kind in Poland, but also in Central Europe,” said Piotr Calbecki, the Kuyavian-Pomeranian province's elected assembly leader (marshal), in an interview with the Polish Press Agency (PAP).

“This place has gained a well-deserved reputation, thanks to consistent development... and we are now using the opportunity to enrich the site,” he said.

Good point Shannon. The reality is that most archaeological sites that are open to the public like this one are conserved and interpreted, so they are really (re)constructions. I guess it's the actual site of the ancient city but the 'Open Air Archaeological Museum' is the interpretation.

I could ave sworn I already posted soemthing about this... it seems somehow familiar. Oh well. My orriginal thought was something along the lines of this whole "reconstricting" idea being somehow not really true. It's and ancient city. If you "reconstruct" it, it's no longer ancient.

This scoop is about how a neolithic settlement called "Biskupin" located in Northern Poland is being rebuilt thanks to funds up to 1 million Euros from EU.

Hello world, meet awesome human engineering from the Neolithic period. That's AMAZING! How could a people whose tools at hand, before even having an entire kingdom (like the Egyptians did) to help with labor, build something like a temple in a rigid and cold environment like Scottland?
