From 25 October 2017 to 28 January 2018, the National Archaeological Institute with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is pleased to present the exhibition “Gold and Bronze. Metals, technologies and networks in the Eastern Balkans during the Bronze Age”. It constitutes a continuation of the exhibition “The First Gold. Ada Tepe: Europe’s Oldest Gold Mine” presented at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna in May 2017 and met with exceptional interest. It is dedicated to the Bulgarian and Austrian presidencies of the Council of the European Union in 2018.

The exhibition is inspired by the research project “Bronze age gold road of the Balkans – Ada Tepe mining: producers and consumers” between the National Archaeological Institute with Museum (NAIM) at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and the Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) at the Austrian Academy of Science.
