MAINLY MEDIEVAL 5.0 - FROM EXCAVATION TO EXHIBITION
The "fifth season" of Mainly Medieval is here!
At the exhibition, which has been held since 2015, the colleagues of the Medieval Department always presents the most interesting and most valuable medieval finds of the previous year. This year the exhibition was organized in an unusual way in several respects: in addition to the objects, we also present the work of museum professionals (archaeologists, conservators, archaeozoologists, surveyors, historians) in a light-hearted comic format, and while the museum gates are closed, visitors can view the exhibition online. One of the most special parts of the installation is the stylized reconstruction of a well found in the courtyard of the Buda Hospital of the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God, in which visitors can discover the skeleton of a drafthorse as the archaeologists found it.
During the virtual tour, you can view the entire exhibition, look at the small details, and take a closer look at each object to learn more about their story. And if you want to play, you can guess what kind of animal bone can be seen on the cards (bear canine? camel skull? perhaps a polecat's pelvis?); or you can cast your vote on whether you'd prefer to be an archaeologist, a conservator, an archaeozoologist, or a historians. Moreover, visitors can leave messages in the virtual replica of our medieval money box.
