If «a picture is worth a thousand words», then this exhibition attempts to narrate many little stories, from the time of the First World War in Kilkis, when the battle trenches of the Macedonian Front turn into excavation trenches of a surprising disclosure of the past.


This incident will trigger the advent of archaeological research, seeking to explore in tells and tables of the Kilkis region the material imprints of the residential choices and the burial practices of prehistoric and proto-historic communities.
