1st Archaeological Marketplace

You can't buy anything at this marketplace. But you can buy something! Namely the knowledge of how archaeology works.

Learn from staff of the Saxon State Office for Archaeology how archaeology "works" and try it out for yourself: excavate, identify and sort found objects, label and assemble shards, guess archaeological ground features on aerial photographs and much more.

Venue Information - Königstein - Fortress

Nestled in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains lies the town of Königstein on the banks of the Elbe. High up above Table Mountain is the fortress Königstein, one of the largest and most beautiful mountain fortresses in Europe. But the fantastic view, which results at almost every point of the 1800 meter long canyon, is worth the climb. In addition to the panorama, the exciting architecture and history, above all, the extremely varied and varied adventure program for young and old sets new standards in European fortress tourism.
