a case of display
Oh no, the spectacle is missing! Where are the “replica fire pit” and the “smell of wood smoke”? Where is the almost meaningless speculation about who these people might have been? Where is the interpretation of their motives based on present-day cultural cliche and the not very interesting personal assumptions of the archeologists? The story is not being told! Only the bare evidence is present here! Will no one think of the children? Why you’d almost have to admit this was a museum rather than a richly-storied edutainment.
Did you go see the Vikings by any chance? Whatever the hell a viking is, anyway.
