With the book "Opfer für die Götter - Kult und Leben in der Vorzeit" (Sacrifice for the Gods - Cult and Life in Prehistoric Times), which will be presented on October 5, 2021 at 19:00 in the Wagner'schen Buchhandlung in Innsbruck, the Museumsverein Fliess gives an insight into the first advanced civilizations in the Alpine region in the Bronze and Iron Ages, i.e. long before the Romans moved northwards across the Alps, using the example of the numerous and top-class finds in and around the village of Fliess. Even then, the "Tyroleans" lived in 2-story houses, with a lockable entrance door and an open fireplace. A general standard of living that was only surpassed in the Alpine region with the industrial revolution. The Raetians, who are considered an independent culture along with the Celts, Venetians, Ligurians and Etruscans, settled in the Bavarian Alpine foothills, in Tyrol, in South Tyrol, in Trentino and even in Feltrino (Veneto) and in the north of the province of Verona (Veneto), i.e. along most of the Via Claudia Augusta. The museum association and the municipality have succeeded with great investments in keeping the numerous finds that were made around the village of Fliess in the village and in creating a worthy museum quarter for them. This and the Via Claudia Augusta Tirol Documentation Center located opposite make Fliess a Mecca of pre-Roman and Roman archaeology and history. At the book presentation, Univ.-Prof. Dr. Gerhard Tomedi, among others, will speak about "Archaeological Treasures in the Municipality of Fliess". The presentation in Innsbruck, together with the University of Innsbruck should show that this is a Tyrolean topic, which has also found its expression in many other places in Tyrol, but in Fliess is presented particularly well and impressively. Admission to the book presentation on October 5, 2021 at Wagner'schen Universitäts-Buchhandlung at Museumsstraße 4 in 6020 Innsbruck is from 18:40. Attention, 3G proof required. By the way, the new book is available in the store of the Museumsverein Fliess and in the Wagner'schen bookshop, which also has its own bookshop: www.wagnersche.at.
