Opening of the temporary exhibition «Bringing to life Aegean Late Bronze Age Costume».

Experimental reproductions of costumes bring to life in a vivid and direct way the dressing preferences and peculiarities of the Minoan and Mycenaean society which are known mainly through cretomycenean art.

Creator of the experimental costumes is Diana Wardle, a research archaeologist, scientific collaborator of the University of Birmingham and a member of the British School at Athens. Wardle studied in detail the representations in wall paintings and miniature sculptures, as well as the weaving technology of the vertical loom.
