Archives des sables. De Palmyre à Carthage.

PHOTOGRAPHIES AÉRIENNES D’ANTOINE POIDEBARD, EN COLLABORATION AVEC LA BIBLIOTHÈQUE ORIENTALE DE BEYROUTH.

Des fortins oubliés dans la steppe syrienne, des voies romaines recouvertes par les sables, des ports anciens engloutis sous les eaux de la Méditerranée et des sites archéologiques désormais ravagés par les pillages et les destructions modernes…

Témoignages irremplaçables sur le passé antique du Proche-Orient, les photographies du père jésuite Antoine Poidebard illustrent les origines de l’archéologie aérienne, dès les années 1920.

Permanent exhibition

YESTERDAY… Between the Mediterranean and the North Sea

Description

“YESTERDAY… Between the Mediterranean and the North Sea”. 500 centuries of local history in the heart of Europe: this is the theme of the permanent exhibition at the Laténium. You are taken – step by step – through the different stages of human evolution, from the present day back to the times of the Neanderthal man. The exhibition consists of 8 different rooms, comprising a total area of 2200 m2. In reverse order, it spans a time frame from the Renaissance to the Palaeolithic Era. Thanks to clear explanations, small-scale models, audiovisual media, games for children and many more features, each room settles you into a new atmosphere, where you may learn about the basics of archaeological work and the scientific interpretation of our own past.

The Park

The Latenium archaeological park

Lying on the south face of the Jura Mountains, the Laténium archaeological park is a perfect place for a stroll. It tells the story of the shores of Lake Neuchâtel and its people, from the end of the Ice Age until today.

Several different landscapes on display, from tundra to present-day agricultural land, show the climatic and environmental changes which the Neuchâtel region went through since the end of the Ice Age. Furthermore, full size reconstructions and authentic archaeological artefacts are presented in the park, bringing prehistory to life!
