We had been here before for the Viking Exhibition earlier this year, but we didn't see the Archeology department back then.
Reconstruction of the Emmer-Erfscheidenveen bog find.
dating to 1200 BCE
Replica of the dress of the lady who was found at Zweeloo,
often called a princess because of the large and expensive finds buried with her.
New interpretation of the finds suggest that she was indeed a woman of great importance,
like a priestess
Dating to 500 CE.
Coin hoard dating to ca. 890 CE.
It has 144 silver coins and one golden coin, held by a wooden container
with a sliding lid in a leather pouch.
Netted texile fragment, I presume a hairnet.
A spindle and stone for a weaving loom.
Glasses, a key, necklace with semi precious stones.
Reproduction of another bog find, dating to the late middle ages, 1435-1625 CE
Found at Wijster.
And for those wondering if we did any normal vacation things with our son. I can put your mind at rest, ofcourse we did! We went swimming, visited the Zoo and relaxed at home a lot.
