Neolithic settlement reconstructed

Neolithic settlement reconstructed | Neolithic Life | 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.

Shannon Bench's insight:

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.

Louise Zarmati's comment, September 27, 2013 11:04 PM
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.
Sarah Kerr's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:09 PM

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.

Taphonomic analysis of Neolithic seated burials

Taphonomic analysis of Neolithic seated burials | Neolithic Life | Scoop.it

Taphonomy is the study of how organisms decay and become altered following their death. Understanding how this process manifests in human burials during the excavation is extremely important, and can lead to improved interpretations of the burials when carried out properly.

This articel is talking about neolithic revolution, and how people started to settle, fasrming and start eating differents type of food. And this became a lifestyle. Because farming was hard work.

Wow. This is the first that I've seen of an article or ad that talks about interpretating neolithic homes. Who would've thought that there were neolithic homes that existed today that could be visited and toured. Sounds like a very historical journey to be on if you were to take a tour of neolithic homes. Dating back to so many centuries.

Discovering ancient pottery took a weird turn when archaeologists uncover that the vases contain cheese residue. Further study into this and they found that the ancient neolithic era may have accidently created cheese. Thanks to their discovery cheese is distributed and made all over the world.
