The special exhibition “Tale(s) by the canal” at the Museum of Prehistory, Zug provides insight into the archaeological excavations in Cham-Hagendorn and focuses on the scientific findings that have been concluded in 2014.
Excellently preserved parts of wooden mill wheels, large ensembles of goddesses made of terracotta, a peach tree and other votive offerings were brought to light. These and more finds indicate the presence of not only a mill and a forge, but also of a place of worship. A canalised water course, that lead to the mill, separated the secular part of the forge from the sacred area.
Tweaklab was commissioned with the entire media technical planning, programming, installing and animating of the various video projections.
At the entrance, the visitors can get an overview of Roman finds in the Canton Zug as well as detailed information about the finds via a touch screen application.
The illustrative projections at the stations “mill”, “forge” and “peach tree” contextualise the finds in their everyday surroundings. Particulary amusing and playful is the “heaven of gods”. Here, too, it is possible to communicate via a touch screen application with two goddesses and two gods, who give insight into religious rites in Roman times.
