Stone Age border experiences

Neolithic and Mesolithic parallel societies in the northern European lowlands

After 2 million years of feeding on hunting, gathering and fishing, the peasant economy has made it possible to target food, feed more people and save surpluses. In Central Europe, the Neolithic with the Linienbandkeramischen Kultur (LBK) spread very quickly and brought agriculture and livestock by about 5.500 v. Chr. To the northern edge of the low mountain range. The subsequent Neolithisierung of the Northern European low level took place only much later around 4.200 v. Chr., But then with high dynamics. The reasons for this are controversially discussed in research, but have only recently been answered by new branches of science such as paleogenetics. A problem that has long been regarded as unsolvable has once again become highly topical: Who established cereal farming, domestic animals and house construction in the lowlands and thus laid the foundation for rural life right up to the Industrial Revolution? For this question, the site Hüde I am Dümmer, whose finds are kept in the Landesmuseum Hannover, central. Based on new perspectives on these and related finds, the centuries-long coexistence of early farmers and "native" hunter-gatherer fishermen is discussed. It is also asked why these parallel societies disappeared so suddenly and were largely replaced by a very similar in terms of ceramics and grave customs ideology - the funnel beaker culture.

Decolonization requires dialogue, expertise and support

heidelberger statement

On the occasion of the annual conference 2019 of the Directors of the Ethnological Museums in the German-speaking area in Heidelberg, the following statement was adopted:

Decolonization requires dialogue, expertise and support - Heidelberger opinion

In German-speaking countries, more than twenty public ethnological and world cultural museums, university museums and collections as well as ethnological departments in multi-variety museums preserve a significant number of collections of cultural artefacts, photographs, film and sound documents, and written records. These collections are obtained in fiduciary due diligence. The objects were used to establish relationships between people who were and are significant to their descendants as well as to all societies for those who made them. These relationships are - similar to Diaspora connections - in the foreground of our attention.

Saxones

a new story of the old saxony

In Lower Saxony today live around eight million people. They have their roots everywhere in Europe and in the world. Many families have been settled here for centuries, some perhaps since the early Middle Ages. At that time almost all inhabitants of the country were called "Saxones". Are today's Lower Saxony descendants of these "old Saxons"? Where does the name "Sachsen" come from and who were they? In co-operation, the Braunschweigische Landesmuseum and the Landesmuseum Hannover 2019 present a new history for Lower Saxony in a large joint exhibition. The exhibition traces the myth about the "old Saxons". More

deep sea

live in the dark

The deep sea is one of the most mysterious places on earth - still largely unexplored and thus the last big dark spot on our planet. This may be one of the reasons for the great fascination that the deep sea has
to the people. It attracts us with something words can not grasp - a distant world, in eternal darkness, inhospitable and yet full of life.

The exhibition »Deep Sea. Living in the Dark «at the Landesmuseum Hannover gives an insight into this unique world. It promises an interactive and multimedia underwater experience and close encounters with original deep-sea fish, which are among the most bizarre creatures our planet has to offer.

Partner of the exhibition is that GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel - One of the world's leading institutes for deep-sea research. The deep-sea is one of the most mysterious places on earth - still largely unexplored and thus the last big dark spot on our planet. This may be one of the reasons
for the great fascination that the deep sea exerts on people. It attracts us with something words can not grasp - a distant world, in eternal darkness, inhospitable and yet full of life.
