Municipal Archaeological Exhibition
The Municipal Archaeological Exhibition, located in the street of La Barca (former food market), highlights and interprets through different archaeological pieces the history of Almodóvar del Río from its first settlers to the Islamic period (Middle Ages). The exhibition consists of two rooms:
Prehistory (Lower, Middle and Upper Palaeolithic, Neolithic and Chalcolithic). The first industries and those who manufactured them, the advances of the Neolithic and Chalcolithic towns, highlighting among their hand axes pieces, carved stones, quern-stones and spindle whorls, in addition to recreating a Neolithic hut, can be seen in one of the rooms.
From the ancient world to the Islamic era. The Iberian-Turdetan culture, the arrival of the Romans, the development of mining and its commercial activity, the Visigoth vestiges and the Muslim splendour. The exhibits include votive offerings and Iberian pottery, handles of oil amphoras with seals, terra sigilata, Roman numismatics or Andalusian ceramics. Here there is also a reproduction of an Iberian house to recreate the habitat of that period.
