Description

In the course of the research internship at the University of Vienna in spring 2012, students explored central aspects of the 19th century Weinviertler village as a natural-social system, based on archival sources and under the guidance of University teachers and tutors. The results were used for elaborating a new concept for the local museum: Weinviertler Museumsdorf Niedersulz.
