Krakow Archeological Museum


The wood work on the sarcophagi, the carving on the stone figurines, the paint on the pottery; All the details on the physical pieces of history were done by very real people in very real places hundreds, if not thousands  of years before our skyscrapers and space-age technology were even remotely fathomable.


I spent the end of May 2012 traveling around Southern Poland. The following photographs were taken at the Krakow Archeological Museum. As a student of history I could not put my camera down.


Museums like this one are the magical places where anyone can go to connect with our past. Being provided with a small glimpse into the lives of our human ancestors, we are given a direct link to history.
