From mousetrap to silver treasure, dog skulls and even lion bones. In the soil of The Hague there are archaeological remains dating back to the Stone Age. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Archeology Department in The Hague. A selection of the most beautiful or most special finds from that period can be seen during a special jubilee exhibition. This can be seen until 16 November in the atrium of The Hague town hall.

In recent decades, hundreds of thousands of finds have been dug up in The Hague. These finds have been carefully restored and preserved. Many special people have been involved in the Archeology department over the years. A number of them posed for a photo with their favorite find for this exhibition. Of course, the Roman milestones from the Wateringse Veld and the recently in the news lion bones from the Buitenhof should not be missed. The finds themselves (or a faithful replica) can also be viewed during the opening hours of the town hall.
