Night of Archaeology at the State Museum – Update 6
Last week we had lots of fun at ‘Archeonacht’ the night of Archaeology, hosted at the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, (RMO, National Museum of Antiquities). Pull Tab Archaeology has entered the utter vestiges of archaeology near the first archaeology faculty of the world (chair in 1818) and WE ARE HERE TO STAY!
Thanks Jesper de Raad and Lara Boon for asking us, we had tremendous fun, nice enthusiast visitors at the table and a few intenser conversations about if pull tab archaeology inflicts harm to what others called ‘genuine archaeology’. Of course, RMO being the heart of Dutch archaeology, we do not avoid such discussions. In fact, we welcome it! And if you have an opinion, please comment below this page.
Really cool was the talk with a graduated aluminium specialist (PhD) on the types of aluminium in a beverage can. Sure hope we will have more contact soon. Also the CHAT board agreed on promoting the project so when truly critical archaeology geeks past the table with big frowns, I could refer to the CHAT-conference sign in front of them with great relief 😉
Our experiences have been included in Update Video 6. We had more fun at RMO than the video shows…wanna see? Well, its a bit naughty, secret, practical joke-like, so if you want to see it you have to become a patron and check the bonus video there. 😉
