“From the Macedonian to the Thessalian Tempe, from Rentina to Velika”

Start Date:  03 Jun 2019

End Date:  30 Sep 2019

Showroom:  Wing of temporary exhibitions “Kyriakos Krokos”

The exhibition presents five selected fortified places from Macedonia and Thessaly, connected by the fact that they were founded, built, or renovated during the years of Emperor Justinian I (527-565). Particular importance is given to the communication and the networks of roads that have formed between the fortifications and to the economic and commercial relations that have developed in the region.
At the same time, the course of each position is highlighted over time. In addition, this exhibition is another opportunity for the Museum to showcase important excavations of the region of Central Macedonia, which are kept in its storerooms and have not been exposed to the public until now.
