A good year ago, the National Museum of Slovenia presented the Roman
Stories from the Crossroadsas the first part of the new permanent
archaeological exhibition to the public, so joining in the celebrations of the
2000th anniversary of Emona. Now the museum narrative continues with the outstanding
material from the period that takes us from the disintegration of the western
Roman Empire to the end of the Middle Ages.
The exhibition is composed of three
basic sections, entitled The Collapsing Roman World, The New Homeland of the
Slavs and The Medieval World. Archaeologists and conservators have ensured that
visitors to the museum can see the precious fittings and jewellery of the
inhabitants of that time, and learn about their dwellings and habits. A special
corner is intended for children in order to set off on a trip to the turbulent
time of the late antiquity.
