Experimental Archaeology


             The experimental archaeology in the Bucium research programme will consist mainly of replication experiments in which artefacts and activities related to gold mining will be reproduced. Students will take part to the reproduction of the most important wooden tools, as well as ancient stone tools, such as the grinding mill.

             A special attention will be paid to the reconstruction of a "steamp" (stamping-mills made of wood), similar to the ones used during the Middle Age.

             There will be other experiments dedicated to the replication of gold panning.
