Description:

The Spessart Archaeological Project (Archäologische Spessartprojekt) aims to spread information about the landscape in the Spessart region, recovering its history and raising the populace's awareness of its value. This part of Germany has historically been perceived by the local population and visitors alike as a poor place with a very forested landscape that has barren, rather unproductive soil and extreme weather conditions. The association that coordinates and promotes the project is working to change this perception with initiatives related to the existing archaeological heritage such as carrying out excavations with local volunteers and students, while encouraging the local population to identify with the area and appreciate it more. The association has also created more than seventy cultural routes aimed at facilitating access to and knowledge of this landscape.
