About The Event

The next six episodes of "The History of Romania in One Object", created in partnership with the Museum of National History and Archaeology in Constanța, will focus on artifacts and objects found in the culturally diverse province of Dobrogea (Dobruja), a Southeastern region of Romania bordering the Black Sea, whose rich historical texture was woven by Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman influences.

The first object in focus is the Menhir of Baia-Hamangia, an anthropomorphic monument more than 5,000 years old, excavated in a burial mound from the Neolithic Age and discovered near the village of Baia in Tulcea County.

Watch on our Facebook, YouTube, IGTV and website on Monday, September 20 at 2 p.m. EST or anytime later!
