The XXVII Archaeological Festival in Biskupin is fast approaching.
Every year, we will be present at the Festival, and our students will perform shows and talk about the past.
This year’s Archaeological Festival refers to the slogan “Mother Nature” and will take place on September 14-18, 2022. The organizers, apart from the traditional sightseeing, according to the chronology of the reconstructions located in the Park, proposed 5 educational paths, the content of which is directly related to the theme of the Festival.

“Costumes of wordly and religious leaders have multiple layers of meaning. Firstly, there is the aspect of ‘dress to impress’, often by making the person look larger than others. Secondly, there are ways of ‘reading’ the costume and its details. For the outsider it will be clear that he/she is dealing with a king, queen or bishop, but the insiders will be able to distinguish more details, hidden in attributes and decorations. How far are we, as researchers, able to go into this non-verbal language of costumes of authority? A case study from Nubia as a foretaste of a new research project.”
