Project description:

This is a story about the miraculous discovery of a treasure hidden in the fields of Srem. In the turbulent times of the fourth century, in Pannonia, the province of the Roman Empire, a soldier buried three gilded helmets, believing that he will return for them. They were buried in the ground until they were found by farmers in their fields… seventeen centuries later. How did they get there? What was the fate of soldiers who wore them? How powerful was an empire whose officers received those lavish, gilded and jewelled helmets as a gift? Read and experience: an interactive comic book in augmented reality: How did the helmet get into granny’s garden?

Seventeen centuries ago soldier’s treasure was buried. Imagine the discovery of helmets in the village of Berkasovo and the bloody battle that preceded their burial. Feel the surprise of a grower who finds a gilded jug and experience the restoration of a helmet from small parts discovered in it.
