First Kings of Europe: The Emergence of Hierarchy in the Prehistoric Balkans

Implementation of a traveling exhibition on the evolution of hierarchy in prehistoric southeastern Europe.

The Field Museum requests support from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the implementation of a traveling exhibition—tentatively titled First Kings of Europe: The Emergence of Hierarchy in the Prehistoric Balkans—about the evolution of hierarchy in prehistoric southeastern Europe. Featuring some of the most compelling archaeological finds from the Neolithic period, Copper Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age, First Kings will tell the story of how small, autonomous, farming communities of the Neolithic evolved into centralized, hierarchical, and bureaucratic states during the Iron Age, approximately 8,000-2,500 years ago.
