EXHIBITION
MAN AND THE SEA – FISHING IN ANTIQUITY THROUGH THE COLLECTION OF THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM IN ZADAR
conceived by: Dušanka Romanović
organizer: Archaeological Museum in Zadar
the exhibition will run until 2 June 2019

As part of the cooperation between the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka and the Archaeological Museum in Zadar, the exhibition “Man and the Sea – Fishing in Antiquity Through the Collection of the Archaeological Museum in Zadar” has been presented to the public in Rijeka.
Fishing began to develop in the Eastern Adriatic already in prehistory, and it constituted a vital component of life in every community, which is demonstrated by numerous and frequent archaeological finds at still insufficiently examined seaside sites.
The exhibition “Man and the Sea – Fishing in Antiquity Through the Collection of the Archaeological Museum in Zadar” shows precisely this segment of life in Antiquity. Visitors will learn about the mythology and portrayals of deities and the products and economic activities tied to the sea (fish farms, salt production, and seafood as a delicacy).
The materials presented in the exhibition are a part of the collection of the Archaeological Museum in Zadar and mostly come from the Roman-era harbour in Zaton, which operated from the 1st to 4th centuries, and then from the territory of ancient Nin (Aenona) and, to a lesser degree, from different sites in Zadar and its environs.
