Temporary exhibition Flow through time presents the results of one of the largest rescue archaeological studies in recent years – studies related to the implementation of the project “Expansion of the gas transmission infrastructure of Bulgartransgaz” EAD. For a period of about a year and a half (March 2019 – October 2020) 120 archeological sites have been studied, which fall within the route of the gas pipeline, passing through 474 km in Northern Bulgaria.
More than 400 objects from 60 sites discovered during the rescue archeological excavations will be shown to the general public. These include exquisite pottery, tools and weapons, gold and silver jewelry, coins and statuettes, from the early Neolithic (6000 BC) to the Renaissance (19th century).
The exhibition is a joint initiative of the National Archaeological Institute with a museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Bulgartransgaz EAD and a consortium of Arcade, implemented with the assistance of the Ministry of Culture, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and 17 museums in the country. It can be visited in the Temporary Exhibitions Hall of NAIM until September 19, 2021.
Together with the exhibition “Flow through Time” until September 19, 2021 can be seen a temporary exhibition “Bulgarian Archeology 2020”, exhibited in the Central Hall of the museum. The two exhibitions complement each other, presenting to visitors the extremely active work of archaeologists over the past two years, and some of the most impressive results and findings.
