Margiana – around 5,000 years ago, this historic landscape in eastern Turkmenistan was the cradle of a fascinating and sophisticated Bronze Age culture. For the first time a major exhibition and cooperation project is dedicated to the archaeological remains of this mysterious culture. From 2nd November 2018 to 17th February 2019, the exhibition will focus on the sensational results of the archaeological excavations and research carried out in Gonur Depe by the Archaeological Museum Hamburg and with the participation of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI, Deutsches Archäologisches Institut). Photographic artist Herlinde Koelbl was recruited to photograph the archaeological sites, landscapes, people and exhibits. The result is a fascinating symbiosis of unknown archaeological relics and their photographic art.


Children’s workshop “Come with me to Margiana”

On a journey through space and time, the children explore the millennia-old land of Margiana. Afterwards, the children will make a souvenir after the bronze age models.
