Permanent exhibition

The Iron Age And Migration Period

Free
Address ul. Cieszyńskiego 9, Wrocław
Entry Free

This part of the exhibition is devoted to the Celts, the Przeworsk culture, the Luboszycka culture and the Migration period. It is designed to show the cultural diversity in Silesia and to pay more attention to some selected topics such as trade, iron metallurgy and chieftains' tombs. The exhibition begins with the issue of Celtic settlements in Silesia. A Celtic warrior’s burial reconstruction is on display. The skeleton is accompanied by numerous grave goods such as weapons and jewellery. The other artefacts associated with the Celtic culture are coins, distinctive necklaces (torcs), brooches, bracelets, amulets and clay vessels thrown on a potters' wheel. The next few cabinets show dynamic developments in the Przeworsk culture. It is discernible in the pottery, jewellery, weaponry and everyday items. An important element in this part of the museum is the reconstruction of a cremation burial with typical grave goods – weapons, vessels, jewellery and food. An unusual inhumation burial from Ługi, pow. górowski can also be viewed in this section. A warrior with his weapons, a horse equipped with riding gear, and pottery and glass vessels were buried together in a single grave. There are two examples of chieftains' tombs. The first concerns an inhumation in a chamber tomb in Opole-Gosławice, dated to the 1st century AD with grave goods made of silver, bronze and glass.
