A Unique workshop of the Bronze age

8 January 2021

Turkmenistan is known to have many historical monuments dating back to the antiquity and the Middle Ages.

Some of them are world famous, all of them are of great importance for science and are under the close attention of Turkmen archaeologists, who from year to year carry out excavations at them and delight us with new discoveries. It is no secret that the overwhelming number of artefacts found are ceramic items. According to the manufacturing technology and the characteristic design of the vessels, scientists can determine the time of production of such finds. The richness of forms of ceramics, the amazing kitchenware of the Margush potters, made with striking grace and high professionalism, are of particular interest to both specialists and visitors to the State Museum of the State Cultural Centre of Turkmenistan.
