International Museums Day (Biel/Bienne, Switzerland)Prehistoric logboat regatta2014
In connection with the exhibition "Pirogue. Préhistoire de la navigation" exhibition, the New Museum Biel (NMB) commissioned the construction of a replica of a Bronze Age logboat. The boat, named Xiphia, was inaugurated in May 2014, on the International Museums Day, as part of a logboat regatta on Lake Biel. This event, which was both sporting and festive, invited the public to try their hand at sailing on replica prehistoric boats.
