description/mission statement:
Submissions for living history sites can be submitted under: 'Entertainment - Museums - history museums' Living history is an activity that incorporates historical tools, activities and dress into an interactive presentation that seeks to give observers and participants a sense of stepping back in time. Although it does not necessarily seek to reenact a specific event in history, living history is similar to, and sometimes incorporates, historical reenactment. Living history portrayal often involves demonstrating everyday activities such as cooking, cleaning, medical care, or particular skills and handicrafts. Depending on the historical period portrayed, these might include spinning, sewing, loom weaving, tablet weaving, inkle weaving or tapestry weaving, cloth dyeing, basket weaving, rope making, leather-working, shoemaking, metalworking, glassblowing, woodworking or other crafts. Considerable research is often applied to identifying authentic techniques and often recreating replica tools and equipment. There are categories for: Canadian National Historic Sites (under - history - canadian national historic sites) - only those deemed of Historical Importance within Canada by Parks Canada. Historic Reenactments (under - entertainment- live performance - historic reenactments)- limited time events (ie. 1 day or 1 week) This category will be for the ones that slip through the cracks of the categories above (ie. the ones listed below) Website with listing of Alberta's Provincial living history sites: http://www.history.alberta.ca/mainfiles/aphsicm.aspx Fort Edmonton Park is another example
