Baking bread over the camp fire
Ötzi and his contemporaries ate small flatbreads. They were baked in a small domed oven made of clay.  A copy of such an over has been built at the archeoParc. We wind the dough around a stick and then bake the bread over the hot coals.

    Clay working workshop

    Long before Ötzi, clay was already a well-known and favorite raw material which made it possible to create heat-resistant, waterproof containers. We invite you to prepare fresh clay yourself from our archeoParc clay pit for further processing and then to form small figures or little bowls that can be dried at the campfire.

Who knows, perhaps you are one of our patient visitors who will make several pearls and then fashion a “Copper Age necklace” out of them?

Make a little pouch yourself the Stone Age way from deer leather. To do so, you will have at your disposal flint blades, plant fibers, and awls made from deer antlers.

    Deer antler working workshop (Awl)

    Ötzi’s clothes and some pieces of his equipment were made out of leather and fur. These materials are too hard and too thick to be sewed directly with needle and thread: they must be previously punctured with an awl.

    Drop-in activity: Sloe Jewelry

    The blossoms are white, and in the autumn it bears dark blue fruit: the sloe bush. Archaeologists found a pit from this plant with Ötzi. We will use the fact that it was desired at his time to make pearls out of the pits to show you how it is done. Who knows, perhaps you are one of our patient visitors who will make several pearls and then fashion a “Copper Age necklace” out of them?
