Cultural diversity – a special view of Antiquity
Description

Living History is now a commonly encountered element of learning history first hand. Every year, in Germany, a number of events in museums are taking place, using this element to introduce the visitors to a particular subject. In relation to antiquity here, larger events have been established to Roman antiquity.In addition to Roman times, there are a number of high quality performers and groups representing different people and epochs.

“Exotic” representations enrich the Living History Hobby enormously, but they very rarely perform on such events. This state of affairs was a call for us, Hetairoi e.V., to bring to life a so-called exotic event, with impressions beginning with the Neolithic age and stretching to late antiquity.

From May 21st to 22nd 2016 the first event of this kind took place in the open air museum Schwarzenacker.
