This spectacular exhibition, which has already been seen by over 40,000 visitors, brings together more than a hundred and forty objects excavated from sanctuaries and tombs at the rich Colchian city of Vani, in what is now part of the Republic of Georgia.
The last two weeks of this exhibition’s run offers visitors the chance to see jewellery, sculpture, pottery and other funerary items that have never before been on public display in the UK, as well as a rare glimpse into a fascinating but long-forgotten ancient culture.
From the Land of the Golden Fleece: Tomb Treasures of Ancient Georgia closes at 17.00 on Sunday 4 January 2009.
