The Lost World of Old Europe

The unknown world of “Old Europe” is revealed in this exhibition, which features more than 200 Neolithic objects from Romania, Bulgaria and Moldova.

Among the exhibits are impressive models of the human form, stunning painted pottery and metalwork, including the earliest known assemblage of gold artifacts from the cemetery of Varna.

The exhibition, which is organized by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University, in collaboration with the National History Museum of Romania, Bucharest abd with the participation of the Varna Regional Museum of History, Bulgaria, and the National Museum of Archaeology and History of Moldova, Chisinau, demonstrates that during the Neolithic the various regions of Southeastern Europe had more things in common than differences.

Curators: David W. Anthony – Jennifer Y. Chi

The “Lost World” is presented in parallel with the exhibition “The relations between Greece and the Balkans in the Neolithic period”.
