I have the Uffizi which has a theming bonus of all Art from the same Era and Civilization.

As seen below I have three from the Barbarians all from the Ancient Era and I am not getting the theming bonus.


  1. Am I doing something wrong?
  2. Are Barbarians not a Civilization? If not what would be the point of getting Barbarian artifacts over random civilization artifacts?
  3. Is this a bug?

Your problem is not that barbarians aren't a civilization, but that you're not displaying art.

Art specifically refers to the paintings produced by a Great Artist, and not the Artifacts recovered by your archaeologists.
