Caroline Nicolay

Caroline Nicolay

Trained in archaeology and its interpretation to the public, Caroline Nicolay worked in various open-air museums in France, Germany and England before creating her own living history / experiential archaeology company. Focusing on the research, understanding and portrayal of Iron Age life and crafts (around 900BC to 50BC), she specialises in Iron Age paints, especially wall paintings, and by extension explores the building materials and techniques used in the houses of the period - a mere 2,500 years ago. Now training in conservation and maintenance of traditional earth buildings, she explores the links to be created between the information revealed by archaeology and the practical knowledge of artisans working in the modern natural and sustainable building industry.

    124. TOUCHING THE PAST: WHAT EXPERIMENTAL ARCHAEOLOGY CAN TEACH US ABOUT HISTORY

    Family Ticket: 2 adults, 3 children; Child Ticket: aged 5-15; Under 5: FREE

    In this event, our panel will discuss the importance of not only archaeology – uncovering the traces from the past – but also experimental archaeology, that is, learning more about our forebears from the process of doing: using the limitations of tools and technology from the past to try and understand how and why things were constructed in the way they were. The panel will discuss their own wide-ranging fields of study, what they’ve learned and how we can better understand the past.
