Exhibitions (25.5.2018-24.2.2019)

The Celts

The upcoming Celts exhibition will introduce visitors to the rich and changeable world of the Iron Age in Central Europe.

Location: New Building of the National Museum, Vinohradská 1, 110 00, Praha 1

It will show the irreplaceable role of Bohemia in the development of the late stage of European prehistory and at the same time will show the results of the professional research of Czech museums and scientific institutions. The National Museum holds one of the most extensive archaeological collections in Europe. Some of the finds will be on show for the very first time, introducing the most interesting results of the professional field research of recent years.

The exhibition will put on show finds from Hallstatt culture graves of the wealthy as well as less ostentatious ones, with examples of the distinctive geometric style of decoration, occurring mostly on painted vessels and beautiful bronze jewellery.

The La Tène culture period in Bohemia will be presented via two main themes – the spiritual world and everyday life in the settlements.

It will also show the phenomenon of the rise of pile dwellings and fortified settlements that later changed into oppida, preceding urban settlements. From their organization and standard of living, it is clear that Bohemia, together with other areas of La Tène culture, laid the foundations of historic Europe.
