Prehistoric Collection

The Prehistoric Collection (from the Palaeolithic Age to the Iron Age) comprises important groups of finds mainly from Switzerland, as well as from beyond its borders. The objects provide information about the history of the first people in Switzerland, about the so-called «lake-dwellers», the Celts and the Helvetians.
