From Tuesday to Friday at 17:00 Museum of Archaeology guide leads a tour of the exhibition "Neolithic Ornaments of Lower Priamurye."

Ornamentation is a special field of art of ancient origin. In the distant past, it combined symbolic and magical meanings. They were more important than the aesthetic one, as people depicted "signs" which, in their opinion, protected them from "evil forces" or elements and helped them in any case. Ornamentation was applied to various objects made of the most different materials.

The thousand-year history of the ancient ornaments of the Lower Amur population can be traced mainly through the ceramics. The world's oldest ceramics, belonging to the Osipov culture, were found in this area, whose features were translated in subsequent cultures - Kondonskaya, Malyshevskaya and Voznesenovskaya. They successively replaced each other during the Neolithic period, unusually early for such northern latitudes.

The exhibition presents samples of ceramics ornamentation from different cultures of the New Stone Age era. You will see items that are 12 thousand and 13.5 thousand years old, and the guide of the Museum of Archaeology will tell you the hidden information that could carry ancient ornaments, which will probably help you to take a fresh look at those distant times, when the world did not yet know metal.

The exhibition will run through May 19, 2024.
