ARCHAEOLOGY EXHIBITIONS AND FACTS IN 2015
This year 2015, it is really good news for all archeological fans and beginners out there. We all know that each and every year, the museums all round the world will be hosting travel and temporary exhibitions which is really cool. They only features special exhibitions that often provide locals with an opportunity to see these special artefacts and related objects that they would never expect to exist in the first place.
Now, let me take you to the top exhibitions that I have encountered during my travels in different parts of the world:
- Ancient Greece
There is a lot of news in the Ancient Greece during 2014 and most of it is notable for the excavation o the Tomb of Amphipolis. During this discovery, they have opened up slightest interest in the world of archeology and unlocking the ancient history that was gripped by the possibility that was in the presence of the Tomb of Alexander the Great. So it seems appropriate to have a major exhibition on the Ancient Greeks touring North America. This would be on top of my traveling list probably this year or the next one for sure.
- The Ruins of Carthage
If you are really into the 9th century BC artefacts, then you probably would have love the presence of the Carthage that was discovered or founded by the Phoenicians and later on was destroyed by the Romans in 146 BC. They say that the ruins of Carthage were discovered in the early nineteenth century and are one of the greatest artefacts ever discovered in the European collections. Now, it has been joined by number of objects from various museums in Tunisia and it is also the first time many of these have been on display on the outside of Tunisia. The Carthage exhibition tells the eventful history of this fascinating ancient city, beginning with the founding of the ancient city, followed by its subsequent annihilation and reconstruction by the Romans.
- The Aztecs
Who doesn’t love the great Aztecs history? They once lived in what is now called central Mexico from the 14th to 16th centuries and the best part of them is their vast and powerful empire which is much dominated by the Mesoamerica until the arrival of the Spanish in 1519. The Aztecs have spectacular artefacts and ruins that tell us great stories about their great civilization as you can see in most museums around the World.
- The Battle of Wittstock
Have you heard about the 1636 battle? It was called the Battle of Wittstock and it is one of a series of battles in great Europe’s Thirty Years War. Aside from that, it is one of the most destructive, disturbing and longest wars in European history that raged between the year 1618 to 1648. The story behind this war, it all started out as a war between the Protestants and Catholics but developed to a broader political conflict for dominance in Europe that lasted for several years and is one of the longest war ever recorded in history.
- The Berthouville Treasure
Now let me take you to the ancient luxury and Roman Silver Treasure from Berthouville. They say that the treasure is a rare collection of 93 Roman objects unearthed in year 1830 by a farmer in Normandy, France and is one of the greatest collections ever discovered. They are composed of decorated bowls, cups, jugs and many more. For me, they are more than treasures. They are priceless possessions anyone could ever have.
