The exhibition GALLAECI: A People between Two Worlds revealed the rich cultural legacy of Galician prehistory, showing what changed and what remained the same over this 2,000-year period of history and highlighting the merits of Gallaeci culture with a selection of its most iconic archaeological artefacts.
The northwest corner of the Iberian Peninsula has one of the highest concentrations of archaeological sites in Spain.
The exhibition reviewed the changes observed in trade and cultural relations between the Gallaeci and other spheres of influence on the Atlantic seaboard, from the Bronze Age to the advent of Christianity.
The show's global approach was based on the idea that the Iberian Peninsula, thanks to its geographical location, has played a strategic role as both a bridge territory and the edge of the known world. Since prehistoric times, it has been a point of connection, conjunction and convergence between two worlds: the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.
Although evidence has traditionally indicated that the peninsular northwest clearly pertained to the Atlantic sphere of influence, the latest archaeological research proves that it was integrated in both Atlantic and Mediterranean circuits.
Visitors to the show learned about different aspects of the lifestyle of those societies and their belief systems, the structures that have survived to the present day, and systems of spatial occupation, examining the influences and impact that other cultures may have had on them.
The final part of the exhibition was dedicated to the historic landscape of the Rías Baixas, its potential and its characteristics.
