Description

The highlights of the Archäologisches Museum, housed in the former Carmelite Church, are archaeological finds from Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region. Excavations are analyzed, restored and exhibited to the public. The prehistoric section shows objects from the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. The contents of the Roman section originate mainly from the Roman town of 'Nida' (the Roman name for Frankfurt), and give an interesting insight into the everyday life of an ancient town. The section entitled 'The Early Middle Ages' offers an overview of the city in the Alemannian and Frankish times, after the Romans left. Visitors find out more about the Stone Age in the section entitled 'Franconofurd - the beginnings of Frankfurt-am-Main'. In the modern extension there are archaeological collections from the Mediterranean and the Near East dating from the 5th-1st centuries B.C. This consists mainly of ancient vases, bronzes, glass and stone sculptures.
