We cordially invite you to the opening ceremony of the temporary exhibition “The Phenomenon of Jars in Funeral Rites: The Culture of Jar Burials in Antique Armenia,” held at the History Museum of Armenia on September 16 at 12:00. The exhibition is organised in cooperation with the History Museum of Armenia and the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography NAS RA.

For the first time, the burial jars found by chance from the excavations of various Armenian archaeological sites (Garni, Nor Armavir, Metsamor, Nerkin Naver, Mastara, etc.) are presented with their accompanying property: pottery, metal, jewellery and other items.

On the same day, from 13:00-15:00, a workshop dedicated to the culture of jar burials will take place.

Entrance is free.
