Students of the University of Vienna


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.
