Text from the exhibition curators:
The present exhibition brings to the public attention the newest objects that entered in the last two years in the Museum collections from the area of Sibiu County; the artefacts on display were not discovered as the result of scientific archaeological researches (systematic, preventive etc) but through the use of technical means which, although modern, are destructive in method – the metal detectors.
Isolated pieces or discovered in hoards, of a large typological variety and of a certain historical value, the exhibits present a deposit of prehistoric tools, a late medieval deposit of tools and weapons, Greek antique coins, hair adornments made of gold, fibulae and coins dated in Roman period, jewelry and horse tack items.
