STREAM THROUGH TIME archaeological exhibition

Monday, 14 June 2021

The National Archaeological Institute with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences presents its latest temporary exhibition STREAM THROUGH.

The exposition presents the results of some of the largest rescue archaeological excavations in recent years – 120 archaeological sites have been studied within the route of the gas pipelines and gas infrastructures across Northern Bulgaria. More than 400 artefacts from 60 sites discovered during the rescue archaeological excavations will be presented to the public. These include exquisite ceramic vessels, tools and weapons, gold and silver jewelry, coins and statuettes, from the Early Neolithic (6000 BC) to the Bulgarian Revival (19th century). The National Archaeological Museum brought STREAM THROUGH TIME to life in partnership with the Ministry of Culture, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and 17 museums in Bulgaria.

STREAM THROUGH will run in the Temporary Exhibitions Hall of NAIM from May 27 till September 19, 2021. In addition to the STREAM THROUGH TIME exhibition, the temporary exposition BULGARIAN ARCHEOLOGY 2020 can be seen in the museum’s Central Hall until September 19, 2021. The two exhibitions complement each other and presents to the visitors the exceptionally active work of archaeologists over the past two years through some of the most impressive results and findings.
