VERSATILE COLLECTION

We display objects from everyday life: flint tools used by the Neanderthals, earthenware pots from the first agricultural societies, stylish tableware from Roman times...

Many objects illustrate important social changes. For example, bronze swords testify to the emergence of an elite in the Iron Age. A unique hoard of gold coins tells of the conquest of our region by the Roman general Julius Caesar. 

Our core collection proves that Roman culture also took root in our region. There are impressive architectural fragments, elegant pieces of jewellery and a wide range of Roman statues of gods and pottery. The wealth of artifacts from tumulus graves also appeals to the imagination.
