Archaeological Collections

The Archaeology Collection features finds from numerous archaeological sites, thus presenting the settlement of the Škofja Loka area over time, ranging from the Palaeolithic, the Copper, Bronze and Iron Ages to Antiquity and Late Antiquity. The Late Antiquity section presents a rich material culture of the Romans, the Ostrogoths and the Lombards, which was discovered at Puštal above Trnje. This period came to an end with the settlement of the Slavs and the written history of the Škofja Loka Seigniory began in 973.
