Upcoming special exhibition: Out of Chaos

Moesgaard Museum's new special exhibition entitled Out of Chaos opens 12 November.

In the exhibition, one of Europe's most exciting and complicated periods is highlighted. A period when the great Roman Empire collapsed in the west, new warrior aristocracies and kingdoms arose, and the foundation for the Europe we know today was created.

In the exhibition, you will meet Romans, Huns, Goths, and Scandinavians, and you will experience up close the influence they had on each other.

The new special exhibition covers the period from approx. 300-600 AD, i.e., the time between the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Viking Age. A time which is also called the migration period because of large wars, flows of refugees, and displacements.
