The plans are ambitious: to create seven complexes across 13 hectares, representing almost twenty centuries, from a Mesolithic settlement to early Middle Ages Slavic. A research officer of the Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park, Ruslan Kniga, tells us that a Neolithic habitation (referred to the third millennium BC) will be adapted for use as an archeologist’s house. He explains, “Visitors will be able to handle artifacts, while part of the floor will be cut away, viewable through glass, to show educational materials for young archaeologists.”

Traveling in time, it will be possible to learn ancient crafts, to make a fire by rubbing wooden sticks together, or to make pottery without a potter’s wheel. Employees of Brestrestavratsiyaproekt and the Institute of History of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus are to drive forward the project.
