Photographer's Note

Museum of Vucedol Culture is a museum at Croatian city of Vukovar.The 1,200 square-metre museum not only displays archaeological finds from what was one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe, Vučedol, but also reconstructs the Vučedol culture, which is attributed to the beginning of today’s culture of European nations.

The Vučedol culture flourished between 3000 and 2200 BC centered in Syrmia and eastern Slavonia on the right bank of the Danube river. It was thus contemporary with the Sumer period in Mesopotamia, the Early Dynastic period in Egypt and the earliest settlements of Troy.

One of the major places they occupied is present-day Vučedol, a location six kilometers downstream from the town of Vukovar, Croatia. It is estimated that the site had once been home to about 3,000 inhabitants, making it one of the largest and most important European centers of its time.
