A meeting of museum workers of Turkmenistan and Germany took place in Ashgabat, dedicated to the Turkmen archaeological exhibition "Margiana - the Kingdom of the Bronze Age in Turkmenistan" held in Germany.
The leaders and specialists of German museums - the Museum of Prehistory and Early History, the Rice-Engelhorn Museum Complex in Mannheim and the Hamburg Archaeological Museum arrived in Ashgabat to attend the meeting.
At the meeting, it was emphasized that Turkmenistan is expanding cooperation with foreign countries in the field of museum activities, and the exhibition Margiana - the kingdom of the Bronze Age in Turkmenistan is an example of the Turkmen-German partnership in this field.
German experts offered to study the artifacts found in Margian, with the help of high-tech equipment, which is currently used by specialists of museums of Germany. In particular, this equipment allows to conduct research of various materials and to establish the age of archaeological finds with high accuracy.
Turkmen and German museum specialists warmly recalled the late Russian archaeologist Viktor Sarianidi, who discovered Margiana to the world and discovered many valuable historical artifacts during its excavations. These findings form the basis of the exhibition currently presented in Germany.
The exhibition "Margiana - the kingdom of the Bronze Age in Turkmenistan" was successfully held in Berlin and Hamburg, and is now on display in Mannheim. It presents 220 rarities from museums of Turkmenistan.
