TREASURES OF THE MIDDLE AGES
ARCHAEOLOGICAL FINDS FROM POLAND
A ‘last chance to see collection of medieval treasures from Poland’ which will close on 26th March to travel to Coleraine Town Hall.
Derry City Council’s Heritage and Museum Service have renewed their partnership with museum colleges in Poland and with the support of Down County Museum, Mid Antrim Museum and Coleraine Borough Council have developed a travelling exhibition which will open in the Tower Museum on the 18th January 2014 – ‘Treasures of the Middle Ages – Archaeological finds from Poland’.
The objects in this exhibition are the most valuable items from the collections of the State Archaeological Museum in Warsaw. The artefacts display a variety of styles and types of jewellery in use in the early Middle Ages from simple items made from bronze to more decorated items in silver and gold.
The exquisite items shown in this exhibition are unique and historic pieces which display the great artistic skills of early medieval Polish craftsmen.
