Stone Age Park


Detailed description of the Good Practice

The Archaeological-Ecological Centre Albersdorf (AOEZA) has been working on the aim to re-establish a cultural landscape from the Neolithic from about 5.000 years ago on an area of about 80 acres. To realize the idea the project has taken the following concrete steps: By a mostly natural, but on the base of a landscape-plan controlled development the AOEZA has established a type of landscape which reminds in its structure, proportion and in other aspects of a Neolithic environment. The principle theme for the landscape-development is half-open pasture woodland, which is formed by the domestic animals of the farmers. The domestic animals sheep and cattle of old species have already begun with their ‘work’ for the landscape-development. In the second step the AOEZA built up a ‘Neolithic village’ as an open-air museum on the project area in the immediate neighborhood of original prehistoric grave monuments.

The Stone Age Park offers a lot of activities: e.g. offers for school groups including excursions to the stone age, flint stones and fire making and painting with natural colours, and organizing children’s birthdays in the park / museum.
