European Heritage Days: Europe, a Common Heritage
Celebration in the National Archaeological Museum
The celebration of the European Heritage Days 2011 and 2012 at the Greek Museums is devoted to Crises. Continuity and Discontinuity in History. The National Archaeological Museum participates with the following events:
1. A small-scale temporary exhibition titled “Crises. Transitional Periods in History and Archaeology” will be housed in Room 39, from September 28 to December 2, 2012.
2. The visitors of this special exhibition will be provided with a pamphlet recording more finds relevant to this topic from sections of the Museum’s permanent exhibition, traceable as they stroll through it. These objects are related with some political, social or economic events in a specific historical period (e.g. vase of the so-called “orientalised” style, 7th cent. BC).
3. Informative speech on this subject by an archaeologist will be released in the amphitheatre of the National Archaeological Museum on Friday 28 September 2012, between 12:00-13:00. Free entrance upon request in advance (Monday-Friday 09:00-15:00 in tel. 210 8217724).
