ATHENS – The digital exhibition Proving History, presented by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports as part of the commemoration of the 2500th anniversary of the Battles of Thermopylae and Salamis, offers insights into the Persian Wars through artifacts, excavations, texts and inscriptions.
The digital transcription of the exhibition is a new effort by the Directorate of Archaeological Museums Exhibitions and Educational Programs in the field of museum education and access.
The exhibition, available online in both Greek and English, offers the visitor a fascinating tour in a simple and understandable way, utilizing modern audiovisual media. Even small fragments which seem insignificant at first glance, create an opportunity to reconstruct the facts, sketch the atmosphere of the time, and reshape the overall picture of the conflict between two worlds, East and West, which determined the course of history.
