Music is the “sound-evidence” of Europe’s ancient common roots.

Long before the Old Continent became known as Europe and before the presumed "history of music" began, musical instruments played a key role in creating a network of interconnections, cross-references and shared features among the various European cultures.
The European Music Archaeology Project (EMAP) is the first organic journey from the sounds of Prehistory through to traditions which still survive today, taking us from very early music to the present day composer and blending archaeology and art, science and creativity.

ARCHÆOMUSICA Touring Exhibition

Usually, the past is considered to be silent, but in this exhibition you will discover that it can also speak to us in the most beautiful way. ARCHÆOMUSICA explores an unheard world of sound from ancient Europe, in which the unifying elements of music without boundaries are a constant theme. The exhibition shows the links between European cultures of the past through music, the development of instruments through the ages, and their uses and meanings.
