This year, the excavations in Qantir/Pi-Ramesse get 40 years old. This is a remarkable age for an excavation in our days and so the Roemer-Pelizaeus-Museum in Hildesheim decided to celebrate this today. The whole day is filled with a programme where you can listen to the former excavator Edgar B. Pusch as well as the current excavator Henning Franzmeier. Both present their results and plans and it is possible to get into a dialogue with both of them.

On top of that, we spotted our own reconstruction of Pi-Ramesse in the exhibition playing on a monitor, so people visiting the museum today, will get to see that too. We also know, that there is a LEGO replica of our reconstruction in the exhibition and we will try to get an image of that.
