Poppo on Archeology

Poppo Pingel is a celebrated architect, who came to Auroville in 1968 for the inauguration as the German delegate. In this interview, Pingel talks about his passion for archeology that stayed with him throughout his life, but found an outlet in Auroville. He describes his various findings from his very first excavation attempt to his recent discoveries as well as the challenges that accompanied them. Additionally, he discusses the archeological park he established (which is situated on Crown Road between Solar Kitchen and Visitors Centre) and explains why he chose to create a ‘park’ instead of a conventional historical site.
