Permanent archaeological exhibition in Vinča reopens
BELGRADE -- The permanent exhibition at the Vinča archaeological site near Belgrade reopens on Tuesday, after works to repair the roof have been complete.
This was announced by the Museum of the City of Belgrade.
Visitors will be able to see the site every day until the end of October, and after that, until April 1, visits will have to be announced in advance.
The site is listed as a part of world cultural heritage thanks to the items retrieved, which date back to the Neolithic Era.
During that period, which lasted more than 1,000 years, Vinča was inhabited by fishermen, farmers, tailors, potters, hunters, animal farmers, witch doctors and stonecutters.
The great quantity of items found and long existence of the settlement indicate that it was a prominent spot in local and regional terms. That is confirmed by many items that were luxury goods brought from places thousands of kilometres away.
The significance of the site in Vinča is not limited to the remains from the Neolithic times, because the discovery of pits from the copper and bronze ages (4,000-2,000 BC) and a medieval necropolis (700-1,500 AD) indicate that Vinča remained populated even after the Neolithic Era, 7,000 years to this day.
