Athens Hub Hosts Exhibition on the History of Cyclades

During the period July 27 – December 31, Athens International Airport is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the early history of Cyclades, informing visitors on one of the leading and most resilient civilisations in the Greek prehistory.

The exhibition titled A journey through the culture of Cycladic islands constitutes a concise presentation of the large scale exhibition Cycladic Society 5,000 years ago organised this year by Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art on the occasion of its 30th anniversary.

Since no written sources of the Early Cycladic period survive, the exhibition aims to inform the public in a simple and straightforward manner on the social structure, activities, living environment, and, where possible, convictions and beliefs of the Cycladic islanders in the Early Bronze Age through their creations.
