The Archaeological Museum is recovering pieces from sites related to childhood for an exhibition that can be seen until December

The territorial delegate of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Juan José Alonso, has inaugurated the exhibition called “The Museum of Almería” at the Museum of Almería. “Traces of Childhood” accompanied by the director of the center, Tania Fábrega, and the director of the Ibero Museum of Jaén, Concepción Choclán.

This temporary exhibition, which can be visited until December 1, brings together all kinds of children’s objects: toys, miniatures, bells, rattles, amulets and other items related to child care, spanning from the Phoenician era (4th-3rd century BC) to the Modern Age (18th century), all located in various archaeological sites in Almería, Jaén and the rest of Andalusia.

The aim of this exhibition is to give visibility to childhood within the framework of archaeology and museology, which have historically focused their attention on adult figures and events, mostly male and elite. In this way, it seeks to enrich the understanding of the past through the children of each era. And, although there are few archaeological studies focused on this early stage of human life, the exhibition has managed to bring together a careful selection of pieces.

The temporary exhibition Traces of childhood The museum also has a complete associated cultural programme, with guided tours aimed at a family audience, in which children in the past will be reflected upon as an integral part of society and history. Likewise, through children’s workshops where play is the protagonist, the different stages of childhood will be addressed. Finally, in October, a series of museological conferences will be held, in collaboration with the University of Granada, in which specialists from the major museum centres in our country will analyse the presence and absence of children in Spanish museums.

The opening of the Exhibition featured a performance by the children’s choir of the VOCLA Association, directed by Román Barceló, which has brought together and promoted vocal culture in Almería since 2022.
