Leiden is a university town in the Netherlands. It is also home to the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities. Habitation at Leiden stretches back to prehistoric times. Archaeologists have also unearthed the remains of a Roman fort (castellum), Matilo or Matilone.
A new exhibition about the Egyptian deities in the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden is interesting, but workmanlike.
Matilo or Matilone was a Roman castellum (fort) in what is now Leiden. Today, the site is an archaeological park.
The new Leiden exhibition Casa Romana focuses on everyday life inside a townhouse of a wealthy Roman family in the first century AD.
A new temporary exhibition in Leiden demonstrates just how useful it can be to use a question-driven approach to exhibition design.
A model of the Roman castellum Ockenburg. This small fort, built on the coast near modern The Hagua between ca. AD 150 and 180, probably housed cavalry. It was part of the Roman coastal defences in what are today the Netherlands. The model was made by KOBALT museale diensten; the photo was taken at the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden.
VALUE, a research group in Leiden, organized an afternoon to play and talk about Far Cry Primal.
An archaeological museum shouldn’t be about the past; it should be about archaeology as a discipline.
Public puzzlement over an exhibit at the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden leads me to be invited to another exhibition in Amsterdam.
