Posters and beer

The TASC4/KASC11 poster session will be Tuesday 10 July, 2018. This year we will combine poster viewing with beer on tap from our local Aarhus Bryghus.

Workshop Excursion

The TASC4/KASC11 Workshop excursion will bring the past to fascinating life at the Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus.

Prehistory presented innovatively in a breathtaking architectural setting makes for a world-class museum experience when you visit the Moesgaard Museum. The past becomes alive and the people in the exhibits will step forward and provide the visitors with a better understanding of the past and how we arrived at where we are in the present.

Moesgaard Museum has two Michelin stars in the Michelin attraction's guide.


13:45: Departure directly for the Moesgaard Museum from the large parking area North of building 1520 with busses. Important: Bring your nametags!
