Background Information on Bibliography

One of the most important first steps before doing any own research is to explore what is already done in the specific field. To prevent reinventing the wheel, the present listing is offered. This bibliography holds references for those interested in experimental archaeology and archaeological education as well as to archaeological open-air museums. Chief Editor is Roeland Paardekooper. With the start of EXARC in 2001, the Institute of Ancient Technology (IAT), Sweden encouraged and helped with making this list available. It goes back on the 2,078 entries of Devermann & Fansa 1994. Even now with over 11,000 titles, this bibliography probably holds only the tip of the iceberg. The following publications have been reviewed and yielded an extensive amount of entries for the bibliography:
