In the Shadow of the Roman Empire

This exhibition explores the social, secular and religious culture of the people inhabiting what is now Poland in the first half of the first millennium. Among the artifacts on show, most come from archaeological discoveries linked with two cultures from this period: the Przeworsk culture, which was related to the Vandals, and the Wielbark culture with links to the Goths.

This exhibition features a wide selection of crafted artifacts: armor, work tools, jewelry, pottery as well as coins and weapons. The latter two bear witness to the contacts of the local "barbarians" with the Roman Empire, due in large measure to the importance of the Amber Road in trade at the time.

Stalowa Wola Regional Museum, 1 Sandomierska St., through Nov. 30
