The second annual meeting of the BROMACKER project was hosted by the Institute of Geosciences of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena with representatives of the four participating institutions on 29-30 March 2023. The topics of the meeting covered a broad spectrum from the scientific results of the excavation and core drilling in 2022 to those of the scientific and popular dissemination of the research results. In addition, the organisation for the new excavation season, which starts on 17 July 2023, was discussed, as well as a first collection of ideas for a popular book about the Bromacker fossil site. During the meeting, the participants had the opportunity to visit the Phyletic Museum and the laboratories of the Max Planck Institute for Geoanthropology in Jena.
