The traveling exhibition “Treasures of the Middle Ages” will open on December 15 at the Byzantine and Christian Museum. The exhibition which has been presented at several European cities in Germany, Finland, Poland, Ireland, and Norway puts on view 445 objects dating mostly between the 11th to the 13th century. The exhibits, mainly jewelry, were discovered in excavations in Belarus, Ukraine, and Poland. The exhibition has 11 thematic units depending on the use of the objects, the techniques with which they were created and of course their type.

 A prominent position among the exhibits has the “Borucin Hoard” unit, which is an assemblage of 36 treasures discovered in the homonymous region of central Poland and is dated to the 11th century. The exhibition which will run until December 13 is co-organized by the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, the State Archaeological Museum in Warsaw and is being realized with the kind support of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Greece.
