Where Migrations End: From Roman Pannonia to Today’s Vojvodina

April 1, 2022 - April 30, 2022

On the first day of February, a multimedia exhibition ‘Where Migrations End: From Roman Pannonia to Today’s Vojvodina’ will be opened within the Migrations programme arch, at the Museum of Vojvodina. In the 1950s in the villages of Srem, not far from Novi Sad, some precious archaeological artefacts from the mighty Roman Empire were discovered: three gilded helmets of unusual beauty. Dating from the 4th century, after the declaration of the Edict of Milan – the famous law on tolerance – the helmets as symbols of imperial power also tell a backstory of the Pannonian provinces in which, then as now, numerous peoples lived, and where the borders between civilization and barbarism were drawn. In the hopes of exploring migrations as a civilizational phenomenon and to represent local treasures in a contemporary way, the team from the Museum of Vojvodina has prepared a multimedia exhibition. Visitors will travel through time, coming closer to a distant historical context, as well as the exciting process of the discovery and preservation of the ancient helmets. Cultural heritage will be examined through various artistic programmes, workshops, and panel discussions, while a monodrama will present Roman officer Dizon, who might have worn a helmet like this.

Venue: Museum of Vojvodina
