Roeland Paardekooper from EXARC joins us to speak about his work with open-air museums, education, and archaeological tourism. Roeland's passion for archaeology goes back several decades. His passion and devotion to the field come across in our talk. If you are curious about open-air museums then this is a talk you must listen to. In our discussion, we learn about the educational value of open-air museums and how they connect young people and the general public to archaeology. We also talk about the growing industry of archaeological tourism which is connected to educating the public about our shared past. Roeland also reveals his current project of creating a repository for archaeological documents. This is a monumental task and one that truly shows Roeland's passion for archaeology and his belief in educating the public. Finally, Roeland presents us with a delicious and simple recipe from the Stone Age.
