a first glimpse of the future archaeological collection.

The Ulm Museum owns a beautiful collection of archaeological items from the Swabian Jura. Most interesting are the Stone Age finds from the caves of the RegionBlautal (Blau valley) and RegionLonetal (Lone valley).

There are exhibits of all epochs since Old Stone Age. The oldest remains are more than 40,000 years old. At this time the Hunters of the Ice Age strolled through the valleys of the Swabian Jura, hunting mammoth, wild horses and deer. From this early time are the two ivory carvings, the Subterraneahuman figure from the Geißenklösterle and the SubterraneaLionheaded Figurine from the RegionLonetal (Lone valley).

There are remains of all following epochs, like Middle and New Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, and the Romans. Ulm is still south of the Limes near Aalen, the border which protected the Roman Empire for nearly 300 years.

The archaeological collection was closed and completely reorganized during the last years, and is reopened since June 2002.
