Urban Archeology New permanent exhibition from June 29, 2017 in the Cellars of the Aile Wiltheim
- Histoire et archéologie
This exhibition is dedicated exclusively to medieval and more modern finds recovered from the territory of Luxembourg City. Starting in the 10th century, a castle with a settlement were built on this site; by the late Middle Ages, the town consisted of nearly 500 households. Imagine that you are on a sightseeing
tour: let this exhibition be your guide through more than 250 items covering a vast range of topics. Our tour begins at the city walls and will then cover important buildings such as the castle, palaces and mansions, monasteries, convents and churches. Moving on to rooms 3 and 4, you will find exhibits on building styles, trades and crafts, and daily life.
The original location of the individual finds is shown together with texts explaining the objects displayed on the tables. Additional background information on the excavations and on the artefacts themselves can be obtained from the media stations at the tables.
Opening on June 28, 2017 at 6.30 p.m.
