'Dag van de Wetenschap' is all about bringing science to the people and AMGC is very proud to have been part of this. We wanted to show that science is hiding everywhere, even in places people don't always suspect. So we teamed up with our colleagues from archaeology and engineering to talk about archaeological science and palaeontology. Behind the organization is the interdisciplinary group ArCPIG, supported by AMGC, SKAR and SURF.
