Despite the pandemic this year’s International Day of Archeology will take place as usual within the walls of our museum. The subject of this year’s event is as close as a shirt to the body, because the title is “Through the ages around the world with clothes on the back”. During the lecture you will find out, among others how did it even happen that our very distant ancestors began to wear clothes, what was the difference between a chiton and a toga, and what did the brooches look like and what were. The “Medieval Chic” shows are an opportunity to meet face to face with the knight and his lady, as well as with early medieval warriors and whiteheads. For children, we offer workshops on the production of ornaments – bracelets, pendants as well as frames and pouches. There will also be an opportunity to see the most interesting archaeological exhibits related to the event e.g medieval leather shoes, Renaissance figural tiles and prehistoric jewelry. Participants will be able to take a picture of themselves as Bronze Age warriors using a moniddle. We will host a historical reconstruction group – late medieval Chorągiew Ziemi Górnośląskiej from Toszek Castle and early medieval Golęszycka Drużyna Dąb. The special additional attraction will be the online game “Archaeological adventure with Pradziej (the Prehistoric Man)”.
