DEVA FORTRESS- 750 Years Since First Documentary Attestation

 The exhibition summarizes the results of archaeological researches which begun in the late Nineteenth Century and the partial conclusions of archaeological excavations in 2008 
and 2013.
The main purpose of the exhibition is to provide an image about the complexity of life of those who lived inside Deva Fortress,
by exposing a part of the artifacts discovered durring archaeological researches, and to bring to the public's attention events and personalities
that played an important role in the transformation of the architectural ensemble.
Archaeological investigations, carried out inside the three precincts of Deva fortress, have brought to light thousands of pieces, whole or fragmentary,
which reflect aspects of everyday life: from the commonplace ceramic vessels( XIII-XIV centuries) to Batiz type porcelain; ceramic tiles for stoves;
metal objects (iron, brass or silver), from ordinary nails or door and window fittings, to knives and forks, sewing needles and thimbles, ornaments or devotionals,
(pendants dedicated especially to Saint Benedict, rosaries, etc ), bone artifacts, parts of weapons and hundreds of coins.
