THE TREASURE OF GŁOGÓW

The Archaeological Museum in Kraków is holding a temporary exhibition: THE TREASURE OF GŁOGÓW. The exhibition is open between the 22nd of September 2011 and the 20th of March 2012.
The exhibition presents one of the most outstanding treasures of the Land of Głogów - a collection of ancient coins, mostly Polish, dating back to the 12th and early 13th centuries. Considering the number of coins, the Treasure of Głogów is one of the largest in Poland and in Europe. It includes Denars produced by the Silesian prince Boleslaus I the Tall (1163-1201), and the prince of Racibórz and Opole, Mieszko I Tanglefoot, which dominate the collection, making up 86% of it. A fraction of the coins are of foreign origin (...). Most come from Saxony, while only several were minted in Austria and Lusatia (...). The exhibition will display all of the types of coins identified in the treasure. Some of these are unique items, found exclusively in this collection and never before seen elsewhere.
