ARCHAEOLOGY
PREHISTORY AND EARLY HISTORY

The content of the collection is comprised of materials from Upper Austrian prehistory and early history. The objects thereby came from research excavations and salvage operations or relate to individual finds.

The archaeological collections have existed ever since the museum was established in 1833 and were initially primarily limited to finds from Salzberg in Hallstatt and Roman objects. The increasing size of the collection resulted in a partitioning of the collections into the “Prehistory and Early History” and “Roman Age” departments. Since 2002 all of the archaeological collections have been housed in the Welser Strasse office building of the Oberösterreichisches Landesmuseum.

The collection contains objects from prehistory and early history, ordered by discovery sites from graves, settlements and depositories as well as archaeozoological (animal) and anthropological materials (skeletons and cremated remains).

Chronologically the materials come from all of prehistory from Palaeolithic to the Neolithic and the Bronze and Iron Age as well as the early Middle Ages.

Material categories: Stone (axes, arrowheads, etc.), clay (vessels, loom weights, etc.), metal (primarily copper, bronze, iron; e.g. swords, knives, brooches, needles), amber, jet etc., human and animal bone materials.
