National archaeology

  • The ‘National Prehistory’ collection is regarded as one of the most extensive in Belgium.
  • The visitor is introduced to the Gallo-Roman culture, not only by means of numerous tumulus finds, but also through a thematic gallery that presents various facts of the daily life, the crafts and religion of these Celts who had been integrated into the Roman world.
  • If words like ‘scramasax’, ‘francisc’, ‘spatha’, ‘umbo’ and ‘angon’ are incomprehensible to you, the showcases providing a survey of the various types of Merovingian weapons and their evolution can offer some light.
