Archäologentage Otzenhausen – Archäologie in der Großregion
Since 2014, the Europäische Akademie Otzenhausen and the community of Nonnweiler have been organising the cross-border symposium "Otzenhausen Archaeology Days - Archaeology in the Greater Region" (here: Saarland, Lorraine, Luxembourg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Wallonia and Alsace). Archaeologists from universities, authorities for the preservation of historic buildings and monuments, museums and excavation projects in the above-mentioned region report on their work and research results and/or progress. Young researchers are also given the opportunity to present their work. The 4-day event includes about 18-20 lectures, an extensive poster presentation and a book sale. Excursions to sites and museums in the Greater Region add to the programme.
The conference is directed at both experts and interested parties and is therefore open to everyone. The lectures are simultaneously interpreted in German and French. The objective is to promote informal exchange and contacts in the Greater Region and to raise public awareness of archaeological issues.
