Description

Many literary scholars see history in isolation from the artifacts and processes of the period under study. Adding a demonstration of techniques and technologies that have been understood or reproduced using Experimental Archaeological methods allows attendees of ICMS to enhance their appreciation of the underlying artifacts and technologies. This session will showcase 3 technologies allowing session attendees to circulate among the demonstrations and discuss them with the presenters.
