Converging research, schoolchildren's and Teachers' education: an interdisciplinary experience based on experimental archaeology
MetadataShow full item record
Archaeological and experimental archaeology methods explore and apply research techniques, methods and procedures from a variety of disciplines from the Natural to the Social Sciences, to understand human behaviour and its relationship with the natural environment. All these aspects are precious tools for the teaching-learning process. An experience conducted during the 2012-2013 academic year at the CEP (Catalonia, Spain) allowed us to share archaeological and experimental methods with pupils and teachers of the ZER GuiCiVerVi Primary School. This school involvement took place in parallel with a larger research project in Experimental Archaeology about Iron Age Iberian civilisation. Based on the spirit of this work, we carried out another project at the University of Lleida. In this case, it was put into practice in the framework of the Faculty of Education, in which the students participated in a programme similar to one of a primary school.
