Through joining science and art, the TimeMaps project highlights certain lesser known archaeological sites, and offers new interpretations of other, better known, locations thus enhancing the observers’ perception of the Past.
Sometimes, the clearer vision of the Past can be achieved through the recovery and sharing of some of the technologies of the time.
Doing so, it contributes to the revitalisation of contemporary arts and crafts, and provides new options to communities interested in reviewing their economic development strategies.
One such concrete example is that of the Vadastra site, in the Oltenia region of southern Romania.
The project is funded by the Romanian National Authority for Scientific Research, CNCS - UEFISCDI. Project Registration Code: PN-II-ID-PCE-2011-3-0245
