Avenches - Exhibition

This exhibition presents a selection of documents from the archives of the Roman Site and Museum of Avenches.

The archives of the SMRA are little known. Specialised, they are mainly consulted by archaeologists or historians in the context of their work. But they also contain nuggets that may be of interest to the general public. The theme of the International Archives Week is "Archives for All". The exhibits (drawings, photos, handwritten letters, plans, objects, etc.) have been chosen for their originality and for the stories they have to tell.

And in almost 300 years of excavations and research on the site of ancient Aventicum, there are many stories!

We'll be talking about missing mosaics, mysterious documents, extraordinary personalities and famous discoveries, such as the relief of the she-wolf or the gold bust of Marcus Aurelius, which has become a real symbol of the site. It will also be an opportunity to address certain issues related to archives and to talk about the profession of archivist today.
