Graditelji deblakov se predstavijo: Andrew / Builders of the logboats present themselves: Andrew

Having been involved in archaeology in England for nearly six years, Projekt Navis was an opportunity I couldn’t miss. I currently work in commercial archaeology for Cambridge University (CAU), and have worked for a few smaller companies. Having found prehistoric tools on excavation, it is profoundly interesting and educational to actually use replica prehistoric tools for their intended purpose, and to learn how to best apply them to each specific purpose; not to mention learning about how to construct a prehistoric log boat from scratch!

It is also a great opportunity to engage with the public and represent archaeology and heritage in a visceral, practical way. This is a great project and I’m proud to be involved in an international effort to promote experimental archaeology and heritage. Chopping wood also just feels good!

V Angliji delam v arheologiji že šest let in Projekt Navis se je ponudila kot priložnost, katere preprosto nisem mogel zamuditi. Trenutno delam na Univerzi v Cambridgu, v njihovi terenski enoti, pred tem pa sem na izkopavnajih delal za nekaj manjših podjetij. Glede na to, da sem izkopaval tudi prazgodovinska najdišča in raziskoval kamnita orodja, je zelo zanimivo in poučno delati z njihovimi replikami. Tekom projekta jih uporabljamo v takšnih kontekstih, kot so jih uporabljali tudi v prazgodovini in se sproti učimo kakšen je bil njihov prvoten namen. Da ne omenjam, kako zelo zanimivo je iz nič zgraditi prazgodovinski deblak!

Projetk Navis je tudi odlična priložnost povezovanja javnosti in dediščine ter predstavljanja arheologije na živ in praktičen način. Ponosen sem, da sem lahko vključen v promocijo izkustvene arheologije in dediščine. In nenazadnje, obdelovanje lesa preprosto dane dobro!
