31 October marks the final day of our temporary exhibition "The People of Dragons and Birds - The Celts of Csepel Island". Hence, from 17:00 we are organising a Celtic Halloween at the Aquincum Museum.
Did you know that Halloween’s roots go back to the Celtic Samhain? The Samhain was the last day of the Celtic calendar. The word means the end of summer. The Celts believed that on 31 October the boundary between this world and the otherworld became narrow, opening up and allowing the dead and supernatural creatures to cross over to this world.
