Incredible relics


AMAZING unseen relics from the Bronze Age are on display in a new exhibition at the Museum of Cadiz.

The exhibition, which opened on July 22, brings together artefacts from the museums of Cadiz and Huelva, as well as some never-before-seen pieces from Phoenician times.

The joint exhibition draws on the shared knowledge of each museum and will display 105 artefacts demonstrating the skill of the Phoenicians, who colonised Andalucia 1000 years before the Romans.

  1. No Jon, I read them, you write them, so the length of my attention span has nothing to do with it. If you are intimating that your readers don’t have the mental capacity to concentrate on more than seventy-seven words at a time I’d harldy be dissapointed that recent articles are getting shorter if that were true. And I’m a fairly representative reader. Or is it now editorial policy to insult readers who use the comments section to make a valid point? Hardly a good strategy to retain readers. It is a short article. If the exibition refered to is “amazing” perhaps you could give a bit of detail on the highlights, you might like to include when the exibition closes, some captions for the two images detailing what they contain, who put the exibition together, their academic specialisation, how much entry is, when it’s open, failing that some contact details for the museum, or just a link to the museums site if you can’t be bothered… etc
