EXPERIMENTAL ARCHAEOLOGY

The presence of the ruins of a 5000-year-old pile-dwelling village has give rise to the drafting of a project for environmental restoration and the promotion of tourism, accompanied by artefacts of experimental archaeology and philological examples. The intervention will encompass a range of choices all related to each other within the framework of the unitary design of the surrounding landscape. These include the total protection of the habitat, the archaeological area under excavation, and any that appear suspect, the turning of the entire area into a pedestrian zone and setting it up for educational and recreation purposes via the installation of pathways all linked together, and the creating of a museum to represent the pile-dwelling settlement in all its most salient temporal phases.
