This collection brings together the Prehistoric remains of Florence. The time-line goes from the stone-age up to the dawn of the historic age and shows the various phases of human evolution, from subsistence economies to pastoral economies and metal working. Objects taken from these times include implements made of stone, bone, ceramics, weapons made of copper and bronze as well as human, animal and plant remains found during archaeological digs which have taken place in Italy and abroad since the 19th century. The museum exhibition goes in chronological order starting from the Palaeolithic and ending at the Iron Age. There are zones dedicated to Africa, Asia and the Americas. The museum is closed on Sundays.
