ICE AGE EUROPE MAGAZINE 2022 is here!
Our annual magazine is now published in its sixth edition. We are grateful for the worldwide response to our free publication and hope that we can once again provide you with insights into many exciting developments in the context of European Ice Age heritage.
In this issue you will find the new feature "In conversation with...". We spoke to renowned author Rebecca Wragg Sykes about her book, Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art, which has since been translated into many languages and points the way to a better understanding of our close relatives.
A job well done needs to be celebrated. A section of this magazine is therefore devoted to several recent anniversaries: The 20th of the new site of the National Museum and Research Centre of Altamira in Spain, the 25th of the new Neanderthal Museum, Germany, and the 50th anniversary of cultural heritage mediation on Hušnjakovo hill in Croatia, where the Krapina Neanderthal site and its museum is located.
On the first pages of the magazine, you will not only find our new network map. We also share with you some insights into the activities of the Ice Age Europe network. Like almost everywhere, digitization is a topic that keeps us busy. Not only has our collaboration become more digital in the course of the last years, but our joint projects as well. Read about our new Ice Age Europe Online Tours and the Virtual Ice Age Experience, a significantly elaborated successor to our virtual dice game, which we offered from 2014 for a number of years.
