Abstract

Perfecting a public event presentation in the domain of history and archaeology is a long and complex process. It requires mastering three vastly different professions, each with specific competences, and melding them into one coherent presentation. It is a long path from independent archaeological researcher to a craftsman working in the seclusion of a studio, to the role of public presenter, demonstrating both the craft and inspiring an interest for history, while valorising and promoting the work.
