Broomstick Ralley 08

27th Sept. 2008 we had the honour to show 2 black tents at the Broomstick Ralley Event in the Waldviertel / Austria. We set one tent up together with the participants and another one as chilling zone. There was Turkish Tea and a Nargile. There was a big response to the tent, though we have only pictures of the tent before the event actually started, as our camera crashed afterwards:

Hun Festival (Hunnenfest) in Asparn

31th August the black tent research was taking part within the Group WEAT (www.weat.at) at the hun festival in Asparn a. d. Zaya / Austria. 3 tents were exhibited and could be used as shelter for the different workshops of traditional handicraft. The festival was a real success. It is said that 3000-4000 people came on that day. But not only the festival was extraordinary: also the visitors were marvellous. I havent seen so many happy and joyful people on a scientific exhibition. If you have any chance to visit the "Museum für Urgeschichte" (www.urgeschichte.at , Museum of Prehistoric Cultures), just do it! It is worth a long trip!
