Prehistory Alive Worldwide

Prehistory Alive Worldwide is established by two girls with a passion for prehistory. Our goal is to share our passion, knowledge and bring people together with joy! We do this though education, communication, recreation and reliving the prehistory by offering living history, workshops, lessons, sales and more. We do not limit ourselves by staying in the Netherlands, but expand abroad as well. We work together with other groups, craftsmen and museums at home and abroad. Together we can expend and spread knowledge about prehistory!

Afgelopen zondag stond ik in almere bij VINDplaats zenith voor de nationale archeologiedagen. πŸŽ‰

En wat was het gezellig! De vrijwilligers zijn geweldig, en ik heb een paar bijzondere ontmoetingen gehad!

Er was van alles te beleven; brood bakken, geurbuidels maken, uitleg over de vindplaats, knutseldingen en mijn preo activiteiten!πŸ‘£

Ontzettend gezellig en we hadden zelfs het weer een beetje mee! Het begon pas te regenen toen we allemaal bijna alles opgeruimd.

Daarna nog een gezellige naborrel bij het chinese restaurant iets verder op met alle vrijwilligers.

Topdagje πŸ’•

So.... this weekend was Historic Zoetermeer, and i almost didn't go! πŸ˜–

I had a major migraine attack on friday, with nauseousness and the flu. πŸ€•It was terrible.. for i had to work as well that day. There wasn't anybody who could cover for me, but fortunatly someone could take over some of my work so i only had to survive 4 hours of driving and entertaining.πŸ™ˆ

I was very lucky that Cor offered to drive me to the location, and when he arrived here, he was amazing as ever to calm me down and help me. Because.. well.. i was a total wreck...i was shaking and cried every second.😒

So, i survived.. on pills... and felt a bit better when the evening kicked in.
I decided at that point not to go to historic Zoetermeer, for i was not well enough and feared the sound, light and movement. I wasn't able to pack either because of this attack, so figured i would'nt make it anyway.πŸ˜”

But... the next morning i felt good enough.. and the weather started beautiful. I really felt bad by not going, and wanted to go.. so i figured i could better go for this day and see how i feel. I only stayed for 1 day.
So i had to pack everything that morning and called my parents, who were soooo sweet to help me out by carrying, driving and setting up my display. (And bringing everything back again as well)

And i'm so glad i went. I met some new awesome people and got some nice comments on my work.πŸ€“ and not to forget, i got to hug all my amazing friends who i haven't seen in a while!!

I was bloody tired and really pushed myself through this, but i'm glad i did. Yesterday was a bit worse for me, for i felt the headache, nauseousness and light sensitivity more heavy, so i had to chill a lot. 😧

Momentarily i still have some trouble with my head and body, but feeling better 😊

So i survived on the help of my family and friendπŸ’• I can breathe again πŸ˜‚

Ooo i feel the flow again!πŸ’₯πŸ‘Š

It has been a while, but i feel like i'm making steps again to clear the pathway before me. I can really get into a down feeling, which makes me not want to do anything, but there's always that little person inside me who screams 'GO FOR IT! CHASE YOUR DREAMS'! πŸ‘£

And man, how hard it can be to get your head out of your ass **excuse the bad language**.

I wanted to make an email list for years now, and i started like almost 2 years ago with a lay out. I re-opened it again, for i reeeeaaally need to start sending mails on a regular basis, because there are many people request to be kept posted.

So... i am almost done with this mail! And can't wait to send it. I chose to make it in english, for i have followers abroad as well, so i hope it doesn't affect the opportunities here in the netherlands.. but we'll see!

For now, i'm happy with progress! Yaaay me! πŸ’ͺπŸ€™πŸ»

I was very fortunate today, for diederik invited me over at his gorgeous land to teach me how to make my own (mesolithic) bow!

Unfortunately i had some car trouble, and i had to leave early for i had to work in the afternoon, so i didn't have much time to work on it.

But slowly (veeeryyy slowly) it's getting somewhere! I took it home to work on it some more, and soon we will meet again to continue the lessons. The wood is great and from the elm tree, which is the wood from the bows that has been found in mesolithic times.
So i really don't want to screw this up.. πŸ˜†

But already quite proud of my progressπŸ’ͺ

This morning Diederik and i had a second video shoot for the film that will be displayed in Batavialand, produced by GadoGado filmproductions.

It was mostly about micro and small movement recordings this time πŸ‘£. eyes, hands, feet, materials and bow and arrow were all recorded piece by piece.

Whilst i'm not unfamiliar with bow and arrow and am able to shoot.. sort of..allright, i still have huuuuge trouble with a 'floating arrow' when i haven't done it in a while. Especially if the bow is too heavy for me. So i made a total fool of myself and dropped it like 4 times while putting it on the string.🀣 I could see and feel the facepalms and 'dear god...' from the filmmakers and diederik who were right there waiting for me to make the right movement. πŸ™ˆ

So yeah. I felt like a real jackass.πŸ’©

But hey, you can't win them all!

Oertijdmarkt Borger


Afgelopen zondag stonden wij voor het eerst op een markt, en wel de Oertijdmarkt! Deze markt wordt elk jaar gehouden door het Hunebed Centrum in Borger, en wordt druk bezocht.

Wij hebben een goede combinatie gevonden tussen demonstraties en verkoop, en het publiek was erg enthousiast! Dit gaan we natuurlijk vaker doen!

Daarnaast kwamen onze (ex) collega's nog op bezoek, wat voor buitenstaanders een prachtig beeld opleverde. En dat betekende natuurlijk ook... veel op de foto!

We hebben ons ontzettend vermaakt!

Primitieve technologie workshop weekend in Amerika


Afgelopen maand hebben wij het geluk gehad rond te mogen touren door Amerika! Naast al het moois dat we gezien hebben, hebben we daar ook i.s.m. onze Amerikaanse vriend Douglas Meyer een workshop weekend mogen geven!

De workshop stond in het teken van primitieve technologieΓ«n, en bestond o.a. uit blaaspijpen, lokroepen, messen en netten maken.

Het was een ontzettend leuke ervaring, en we willen onze Amerikaanse vriend Douglas en de Nature Reliance School bedanken. Zij hebben dit ten slotte mogelijk gemaakt!
