We have made a theme of the change in the relationship between humans and the environment:

People's lives 4,000 years ago were largely determined by the environment, which by settling, was severely affected. Therefore, in the open air museum, all attempts are made to impress on visitors the environmental conditions that formerly would have existed. The nature trail, an agricultural area, the pond habitat, the herbery and the planting throughout the entire museum are the first steps in that direction. They display the types, composition and uses of the former vegetation.

The overall concept of the Archaeological Centre is to allow visitors to experience and understand the complex tension between people, environment and technology in its historic dimension, accordingly seeking, through guided tours and activity programmes, to provide context and involve the visitor in the action.
