MACEDONIAN TREASURES - A Tour through the Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai
The Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai was built especially to protect the monuments in the burial complex of King Philip II and to facilitate the publicʼs access to their splendid murals, original large-scale paintings of the Classical period. In the form of an ancient tumulus and encasing the monuments, this Museum-Mausoleum is dedicated to the memory of illustrious historical figures familiar to all.The Guide to the Museum of the Royal Tombs takes the reader step by step on the tour of this particularly spare and austere, yet simultaneously atmospheric exhibition of the treasures from these tombs, as these are displayed in units. Impressive photographs amplify the interesting historical information and the presentation of the exhibits, transporting the visitor through space and time, in the footsteps of the remarkable flowering of culture in the land of Macedon, during Classical Antiquity.
