ARCHAEOMUSICA: The Sounds and Music of Ancient Europe

Arnd Adje Both (Curator), Rupert Till (Developer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


The travelling multimedia exhibition was created as part of the European Music Archaeology Project (EMAP), funded by the EACEA for the period of 5 years (2013-2018). It focused on Europe’s ancient cultural roots from an unusual perspective, combining musical, scientific and sensorial aspects. Musical instruments of the European past were explored with special reference to the exchange of musical knowledge between diverse cultures of the past. Around 500 reconstructions and replicas of ancient musical instruments, recordings, and films were produced. The exhibition toured between 2016 and 2018 in five countries: Sweden, Spain, Slovenia, Italy, and Germany.
