German archaeological treasures on show in Berlin exhibition

BERLIN (dpa)- German archaeological finds dating back to the Stone Age go on display in Berlin from Friday, including a 35,000-year-old "Venus" and a Bronze Age sky disc.
The "Bewegte Zeiten" (Restless Times) exhibition contains more than 1,000 finds made across Germany.

The design of the exhibition is by theme, rather than chronological, Matthias Wemhoff, director of the Museum for Pre- and Early History told the press on Thursday.
Among the finds are the 35,000-year-old Venus of Hohle Fels found in the Swabian Alps and the Nebra Disc, showing the sun, moon and stars. The disc has been dated to around 1600 BC.
A Roman sheet-pile harbour wall made of oak and almost 2,000 years old is another major item on display.
The exhibition in the Martin Gropius Bau museum runs to January 6.
