Echoes of Stone Age Greece

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 to Saturday, September 3, 2016

Imagine for a second a world suspended in time. What could a long-forgotten cave, sealed off by an earthquake thousands of years ago, tell us about how people lived in times past?  

Echoes of Stone Age Greece invites you into the enormous caverns and secret lakes of Alepotrypa, which serve as a passageway into Neolithic Greece. The bones and artifacts found there are helping scientists solve the riddle of why some human settlements disappear from history, while others flourish to turn into powerful civilizations. In this exhibition, you can explore Alepotrypa Cave yourself using a touchscreen panorama, and be one of the first to see a 3D model of the cave built from newfound data.

Echoes of Stone Age Greece is organized by The Field Museum.  The exhibition is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
