The Archaeological-Ecological Centre Albersdorf (AÖZA)

Since 1997 the "Archaeological-Ecological Centre Albersdorf" (AÖZA)is working at re-establishing a cultural landscape from the Neolithic (about 5.000 years ago) on an area of about 80 acres. To realize the idea the project uses the following tools:
Through sustainable and near-natural development laid down in landscape-planning, AÖZA wants to control development in order to allow the long-term establishment of a landscape, the structure, proportion and other aspects of which, show strong resemblance to the Neolithic environment. The principle habitat required for such a landscape-development is fairly open pasture woodland, which was originally formed through grazing pressures from the domestic animals of the first farmers. In a second step the AÖZA is - since the summer of 1999 - building a "Neolithic village" as an open-air museum on the project site in the immediate vicinity of original prehistoric grave monuments.
