Aegean: Birth of an Archipelago


An original exhibition on the birth of the geological treasures of the Aegean Archipelago will be on display at the Centre and Technology Museum NOESIS in Thessaloniki from February 19 to May 30.

The birth of the Aegean archipelago is eloquently illustrated by audiovisual interactive presentations, rich photographic material and unique exhibits.

The main section of the exhibition, entitled Recollections of Gaia: from the Tethys Ocean to the Aegean Archipelago, examines the geological history of the region from the vast Tethys Ocean till today. A 14-metre petrified trunk is the most impressive exhibit of this section.



The second section, In the islands of Hephaestus and Poseidon focuses on volcanic activity which gave birth to the unique and diverse formations of the region. A floor map with typical rocks and fossils constitutes the highlight of this section. The third section, Gaia: from Myth to Science, follows the trail of the region’s vast biodiversity during the last 150 million years.

Fossilized trunks, roots, fruits, leaves and seeds alongside animal representations initiate the visitor in a unique journey.

The exhibition is organized by the
National History Museum of Lesvos Petrified Forrest in collaboration with the Museum of Paleontology and Geology and the Natural History Museum of Crete.
