  The exhibition

The temporary exhibition “Eretria: Insights into an Ancient City” will be hosted at the National Archaeological Museum from April 26th to August 25th, 2010.

The exhibition, which is co-organized by the National Archaeological Museum and the IA’ Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities and is an initiative of the Swiss School of Archaeology, will narrate the past of the city of Eretria and central Euboea from their origins until Late Antiquity.

The aim of the exhibition is to present in a lively and original way the life of an ancient Greek city through excavation finds, drawing reconstructions, models and video projections. The exhibition is realized with funds from the Swiss School of Archaeology, the only permanent archaeological mission outside Switzerland. Since its foundation in 1964, the Swiss School of Archaeology excavates and studies the ruins of ancient Eretria in Euboea. All the buildings that have been researched by Swiss archaeologists have been preserved and most of them are open to the public.

The exhibition includes 437 ancient artifacts and is structured in four sections.
