Treasures of Macedonia
   
More than 250 prehistoric artifacts are on show at the State Archeological Museum in Warsaw in an exhibition on the historical Greek province of Macedonia.

The public at large mainly knows Macedonia as the home of the warrior king Alexander the Great, but the land has a long and colorful history stretching back hundreds of thousands of years. The Warsaw exhibition introduces audiences to the everyday lives of prehistoric Macedonians complete with their rituals and creeds before the dawn of ancient Greece. The exhibition covers the times from the Stone Age around 200,000 years ago to the end of the first millennium B.C. The valuable artifacts on display include tools made from different materials, beautifully ornamented clay vessels, decorative objects made of gold, stone and shells, as well as human and animal figurines.

All the artifacts come from the Archeological Museum in the Greek city of Thessaloniki and this is the first time they have been shown outside Greece. The exhibition is disabled-friendly, offering copies of the exhibited objects with descriptions for the visually impaired and video guides for visitors with hearing and speech problems.

Admission to the exhibition is free.
