Abstract [en]

This essay deals with communication of archeology to children. I have interviewed seven persons who work with such communication, authors, guides at excavations, teachers who do time travels and try to dig. My purpose of this essay is to make it clear what is a good method to communicate archeology to children consist of. My issue for this essay is how you make archeology more accessible for children and how to animate to the knowledge of ancient world for children? How do the various methods of passing on knowledge of antiquity? I came to the conclusion that activity and participation are two important factors in teaching archaeology. The methods that worked best in mediating archaeology are time travels and "try to dig projects" with children. Important concepts are communication and public archeology.
