The mysterious time of the Hallstatt culture is about to come to life: almost 3000 years ago the Celts buried their upper class dead ones in Megalithic mounds in the burial field of Frög, along with other precious belongings such as jewelry and weapons.
In Frög was also found an exclusive miniature lead carriage. Different pathways allow the visitors to go through the burial grounds and lead them to an opened baronial grave mound which gives insight into ancestral cult of the dead.
The Celtic World of Frög displays the lifestyle, the religious context, the view of the world and the society in which our ancestors lived. The main exhibition focusses on adorn- ments discovered in the grave of a female human.
Additional and temporary exhibitions designed and brought up by the Carinthian Federal Museum are on display. Combined with special promotion days of experimental archeology, the Celtic World of Frög brings history back to life.
Tip:Unique finding in Europe: pompous leaden catafalque.
