Visually Upgraded Archaeology of the Slavs

Why is an exhibition on the presence of Slavs – our ancestors in Prekmurje – interesting? For several reasons, of which we mention but three: history, archaeology and design.

The first reason is, of course, history, as the exhibition draws our attention to a fact that we already know deep down – that a settlement wave of Slavs came to the territory of the present Prekmurje in the second half of the 6th century, thus additionally confirming the thesis on our origins. The second reason is archaeology, as there would probably be no exhibition as such if it were not for the new motorway through Prekmurje.
