Trypillia Mega-Sites: An international exhibition

17 April 2016 - 19 May 2016 , 12:25
Museum of Archaeology

Based on a project to study early urbanism in prehistoric Europe, this international exhibition looks at the Trypillia mega-sites of Ukraine.

Find out more about the Trypillia-Cucuteni culture of Eastern Europe who were one of the largest and most enduring Old European groups. Dating from 4800 to 2800 BC and extending for over two thousand square kilometres. The Trypillia-Cucuteni people maintained their traditions of house-building and house-burning, making anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figurines and fine ceramic wares.

This exhibition produced by the Durham – Kyiv – Kirovograd Project explores the Trypillia culture and the research archaeology that is finding out more.
