Stichting Historisch Educatief Initiatief
2771 BH Boskoop
Registered with the Chamber of Commerce Haaglanden #27242676
Foundation Historisch Educatief Initiatief (Historical Educational Initiative; HEI) researches different aspects of the daily life of people living in different periods in history Among the members of the board there are an archeologist, a historical geographer and a soon to be historian.
The goal of the research done by HEI is not to publish it in books. Instead the foundation aims to share this knowledge with people in a interactive and pleasant way by means of lively and educational shows and demonstrations.
By portraying people from the past they bring history back to life. Authenticity of the historical clothing, accessories and facts used with these activities is of the utmost importance with HEI. This choice for quality over quantity has led to the foundation portraying the Roman era up to the late Middle Ages but not any later. Within this still large timeframe HEI has decided to specialize in the late fifteenth century, but does not exclude other periods.
Contact information is on their website.
