The project “Monumentalised Early Iron Age Landscapes in the Danube river basin”, abbreviated as Iron-Age-Danube, was part of the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme (DTP) of the European Union. It focuses on the monumental archaeological landscapes of the Early Iron Age, characterised, for example, by fortified hilltop settlements and large tumulus cemeteries, from the era between roughly the 9th–4th centuries BC, corresponding to the Hallstatt period.

The project involved a partnership between twenty institutions from Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. As part of the project, a new communication format was introduced in the Danube region: International Archaeological Camps in eight micro-regions. These camps offered a unique mode of combining research with public interest in archaeological heritage and scientifi c research. During the camps organised in Austria, Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary, several educational workshops and museum programmes focusing on experimental archaeology were developed and tested, particularly with the younger generation, in museums, archaeological parks and local schools.

The reactions of the pupils and teachers to these events have been very positive. This is why the project partners decided to briefly describe some of the workshops in this booklet for further use in schools and museums.
