EXHIBITION ’VINČA PROJECT: NEW ARCHAEOLOGICAL CHALLENGES’9
The exhibition ’Vinča Project: New Archaeological Challenges’, authored by Nenad Tasić and Kristina Penezić, is to open at the SASA Gallery of Science and Technology, on Monday, 28 March, at 7 p.m. Professor Daniel Sinani, dean of the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, will open the exhibition.
Since 2010, the efforts have been ongoing to preserve a part of our most notable and world-renowned archaeological site ’Vinča –Belo Brdo’ which has been struck by a landslide and to investigate it, before natural processes take invaluable objects forever. An interdisciplinary team, which has been dedicated to saving this exceptional cultural treasure for the past 11 years, has worked on the preservation.
The exhibition will showcase the results of the work of archaeologists, geologists, geophysicists, anthropologists, engineers, surveyors and conservators, who have contributed to the study and presentation of our most important archaeological site. Seeing that during the last several years, the most recent layer of the archaeological site dating to the Middle Ages has been investigated, the audience will have the opportunity to see this aspect of Vinča’s site. A part of a grand medieval necropolis was investigated, as well as 300 newly-discovered burial sites dated to the period between 9 – 14 centuries AD. In addition to this, the materials of the pre-historic epoch, from the Neolithic to Bronze Age, will be exhibited.
The exhibition was realized by the Faculty of Philosophy, Belgrade in cooperation with the institutions of the culture of the city and Republic, and it represents a part of a capital project significant to the Republic of Serbia and the Project of Vinča restoration helped by the USA Embassy. The organizer of the exhibition is the Centre for Digital Archaeology of the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Belgrade.
The exhibition is open to the public until 30 April 2022.
