Description

Archaeology since prehistory.

Dating from the Palaeolithic era, the Grotte de la Marche cave paintings have a special place in Magdalenian art.
You can also see finds from Neolithic burial sites, interesting "deposits" from the Bronze Age, and examples of protohistoric ceramics.
Conserved Roman walls remind us that this area of Limonum was endlessly occupied in times gone by.
Ancient stone markers, inscriptions and epitaphs found in the Late Roman Empire rampart transport us to the Pictones city. Under the watchful eye of Minerva, the religion and daily life of the Gallo-Romans is explored.
Funeral rites are examined by the discovery of Antran and a collection of glasses from Poitevin necropolises.
The carved sarcophaguses and rare stucco decoration from Vouneuil-sous-Biard provide evidence of the period between Late Antiquity and High Middle Ages.
A mediaeval glass reliquary vase discovered in the Abbey of Saint-Savin is the only one of its kind in Europe.
