In order to reconstruct the everyday life of our ancestors, archaeologists analyse their waste. It provides information about the type of food, the handling of belongings, and possibly also about the composition of individual families.The "Gelbe Sack" (“yellow sack”, a bag for recycleable waste) shown here is an invention of modern times, but not recycling itself, which man has been doing since the Stone Age. Why not try your hand at being an archaeologist and take a closer look at the contents of the "Gelbe Sack" - what kind of people produced this waste?
