Memory in Stone
This open-air exhibition presents antiquities in stone from Thessaloniki and Macedonia. Most of them date from the 1st to the 7th c. AD, but later monuments are also included.
Many of the funerary monuments and architectural members on display here were re-used already in ancient times in order to cover ongoing needs at times. In this way, these monuments in stone were transformed from carriers of a previous memory into utilitarian objects involved into new human experiences, becoming monuments of oblivion.
This museum exhibition attempts to remind us that Archaeology can gather only few bits and pieces, scattered stones of a collective memory from the legacy that is our past.


(In Greek the exhibition title is a pun as the words Stones and Oblivion are homophones)
