House of archaeology of the Northern Vosges

Mainly dedicated to archaeology, this « House of Archaeology » exhibits all the finds from excavations conducted in Northern Alsace, from the prehistoric times to industrial archaeology. The prehistoric times are represented by stone tools and engraved rock shelters, specific to this region. The Gallo-Romans left many traces in Niederbronn (thermae) and in the vicinity (excavations in Frohret & Ebershoeltzel), where a temple of Mercury has been excavated. The medieval period is focused on the site of Hohenfels Castle where successive campaigns of excavations have brought to light artifacts associated with everyday life in the Northern Vosges. Additional information has been provided by excavations on the site of Schoeneck, also a medieval castle. A fine collection of cast-iron stoves and the presence of forges in Jaegerthal testify to the growth of metallurgical industry in the area.
