A chief aim of the Stiftung Archäologie was to promote the creation of didactic (cognitive) objects on the basis of scientific research.

The foundation supported the making of polychrome casts of ancient sculptures, as well as publications and scientific documentations (e.g. in the form of film documentaries) on the subject in question.

Since 1981, a large number of reconstructions had been carried out by Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann and Vinzenz Brinkmann on paper and in the form of three-dimensional copies in the original size. For the three-dimensional reconstructions, Thassos and Luna marble, artificial marble, plaster, Acrystal, crystalline acrylic glass (PMMA) and other materials are used.

Projects  
THE TOMB OF PHILIP II IN VERGINA
In a cooperation project of the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung, the Aristoteles University, Thessaloniki (Chr. Saatsoglou-Paliadeli) and the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, a partial, computer-aided reconstruction of the hunting frieze of the tomb of Philip II in Vergina was carried out. The Stiftung Archäologie closely accompanied the project.
 
  THE WOMAN OF HERCULANEUM
On the island of Delos, a replica of the so-called Small Herculaneum Woman featuring extensive remains of polychromy was found. Over the past twenty years, several investigations have been carried out. The results are now being transferred onto a cast.
 
  THE PARTHENON
In cooperation with the Skulpturhalle des Antikenmuseum Basel, a section of the Parthenon frieze is to be reconstructed in colour. Various proposals for such a reconstruction were developed as early as the nineteenth century.
 
 

POLYCHROMY ON ETRUSCAN AND CENTRAL ITALIC SCULPTURE
Within the framework of a dissertation carried out with the support of the Stiftung Archäologie (Julia Großekathöfer) supervised by the Institut für Archäologie der Ruhr-Universität Bochum, the extensive remains of polychromy on Etruscan and Central Italic sculptures in major Italian collections are being investigated and documented.
