Hallstatt 7000: Archaeology on the Mountain - Archaeology live
September 17th & 18th, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Scientists from Natural History Museum Vienna and their collaborative partners present their latest research findings from the world’s oldest salt mine in the high valley above Hallstatt.
7000 years of salt have sculpted a truly singular landscape. The long history of salt and the development of arts and production processes found only here allowed for the development of a unique regional culture. These distinctive features of Hallstatt culture were among the main reasons it became a World Heritage Site 25 years ago. Salt, water, wood, and craftsmanship have been key elements of the Salzkammergut region for thousands of years.
Select archaeological finds from the 2022 digging season are presented on location!
- The long path taken by archaeological finds. Every step of the work process right there before your eyes – from discovery and recovery inside the mine tunnels, to presentation in the display case.
- Digital archaeology – learn how laser scanners and CT are used in archaeology and allow yourself to be transported back to the world of prehistoric miners with the help of spherical panoramas and 3-D models.
