Europe: Exchange and Movement

Understanding Europe as a dense network of diverse relationships which has always been influenced by the exchange of goods as well as cultural practices, ideas and values lays the groundwork for the theme EUROPE: EXCHANGE AND MOVEMENT.

Archaeological evidence, built structures and cultural practices are used to investigate the significance of Europe’s routes, paths and axes. They form a dense network in Europe, bear witness to a common cultural identity and make our cultural heritage visible, valuable and alive. So in line with the medieval proverb that all roads lead to Rome, the focus of this theme is on experiencing European trade routes and cultural paths.
