“Archaeology of Daily Life”

6500 B.C.-1300 A.D.

The “Archaeology of Daily Life” exhibition invites its visitors to a colorful historical journey from the shores of the Golden Horn to Anatolia and surrounding civilizations, starting from October 21.

Anatolian geography has hosted many important changes and transformations in the long history of humanity, and the effects of the cultures formed here have spread and inspired civilizations in different regions. To this process of change and transformation that has continued from the Neolithic Age to the present day; We look at it based on man’s struggle for life against nature, his daily habits, social relations and beliefs. For this purpose, he investigates settlements, temples, cemeteries, semi-nomadic habitats and the natural environment; We try to understand their language and interpret the adventure of humanity, that is, history, with the help of the findings unearthed there. The most important witnesses of this process, with all its dynamics as well as the ordinariness and routine of daily life, are undoubtedly human-made daily tools.

The “Archaeology of Daily Life” exhibition, which opens the door to the past, was designed by carefully selecting from our collection spanning from the Neolithic Period to the Seljuks. The exhibition is a continuation of the “Heritage of the Earth” exhibition; With a wink at the “Whispers of Extinct Languages” exhibition, it contains traces of the Anatolian culture that has developed and changed throughout history through the objects that shape our daily lives, along with works that show the development of language and writing, the most important means of communication in daily life.

The works included in the exhibition, which are sometimes described as “very different” and seem to be lost, are reflections of traditions, habits, attitudes and culture; Even though many things seem to have changed and developed, our basic issue that has been going on for ages is very similar; It reminds us, silently and simply, that our joy, our worries, our fear of the unknown, and our curiosity for “beautification” remain essentially the same.
