Knut Pihl, leader of the Board of the Thor Heyerdahl Institute remined us that this year it is 100 years ago since Thor Heyerdahl was born. He told us about his expeditions and that Thor Heherdahl always tried to have an interdisciplinary team on his travels. The Institute continues with Thor Heyerdahl idees and ideals and therefore supports this interdisciplinary summer school. He wished everyone an interesting and inspiring stay.
Arild Vatn was very eager to get to know the expectations of the participants and quickly sent them of in groups to find out about this.
