In the Land of Simon Rutar: the Archaeology of the Podkrno Region, museum evening, 14 April 2023
On Friday, 14 April 2023, at 6 pm, we cordially invite you to a museum evening and a temporary exhibition.
The stories of the Krn area will be told by mag. Miha Mlinar, archaeologist and curator of the Tolmin Museum and one of the authors of the exhibition.
The Tolmin Museum is dedicating the exhibition to the archaeologist, geographer and historian Simon Rutar (1851-1903) on the occasion of the 170th anniversary of his birth.
Two decades ago, archaeological data for the area below Krno were scarce, but today we are witnessing remarkable new discoveries. The exhibition by archaeologists Timotej Knific, Boštjan Laharnar, Miha Mlinar and Matija Turk presents the archaeological heritage of the area below Krn: Stone Age sites, rich remains of Iron Age settlements and sites from the early Middle Ages. For the first time, the exceptional finds from the sites of Gradec near Krn and Veliki Gradec near Drežnica are on display.
