Going for Bronze in a German Museum
A reality TV style exhibit is hitting a museum in Germany this month, with a family in southern Germany preparing to move into the reconstructed bronze-age houses of the Federsee Museum in Bad Buchau. In a scientifically "correct" experiment intended to encourage interest in this open air archaeological museum, the Borngraeber family--Mom, Dad, Anna (15) and Stefan (13)--are ready to live how their forebears did over 3,000 years ago, but just for 10 days: 10-20 August.
This is something we probably couldn't handle, even for this short time. No internet, no MTV, no microwave popcorn: It doesn't sound like a summer holiday activity to us. Mom Margret sees it otherwise:
It's all so exciting; we will be left entirely on our own, to fend for ourselves using only replicas of 3,000 year old tools.Hmm. When did Game Gear come out again?
