In 2018, the Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte and the Verband der Landesarchäologen (Association of Federal State Archaeologists) mount an exhibition in the Gropius Bau entitled 'Restless times: Archaeology in Germany', which marks the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
Digital communication and high-speed transport are bringing people ever closer together, and make globalization seem like a modern phenomenon. But the reality is that transregional networks and all of their concomitant effects have always been an inherent part of society, and have fundamentally influenced people’s lives since prehistoric times. Every day, archaeologists make discoveries which back this up in striking ways. Restless Times. Archaeology in Germany presents the most spectacular archaeological finds of the past 20 years, from the Stone Age to the 20th century. Organized around the four themes of Mobility, Conflict, Exchange and Innovation, and with over 1000 exhibits, visitors will be able to get a sense of the personal, economic and cultural effects of transregional interaction.
