Archeology of motorways

Exposition “Archeology of Motorways” was opened yesterday in National Art Museum of Ukraine, Kiev. It shows artifacts found during the motorways construction near Krakow. Exposition represents numerous interesting objects, particularly the Neolithic clay woman figure found near Modlnica. The figure is approximately 7500 years old. Exhibition (more photos here) also represents ancient stone and metal tools and Neolithic amphora with anthropomorphic ornament. All these objects were found during rescue archaeological works during the construction. Exhibition will also be held in Poltava and Dnipro, accompanied by banners and digital screens that describe the story of more than 600 artifacts.
This is another reason for the community to remember that the possibility of rescue archaeology and the necessity of accompanying all engineer works with the archaeological investigations is a way to improve the state of field archaeology in Ukraine from pitiful state-of-the-art. The remuneration of specialists working to protect archeological monuments from destruction of cultural layers leads to the improvement of the quality of archaeology in general and volunteer archeology in particular.
