The ‘settling’ area of the exhibition presents objects from all periods of history, giving visitors the chance to see how living conditions and traditions have changed. Archaeological finds indicate that the area occupied by the modern-day Principality of Liechtenstein has been inhabited for around 8000 years, and throughout this time it has been a meeting place for different cultures. A ceramic vessel dating back to the 5th century B.C. is the key exhibit and serves as the starting point for a journey through history during which visitors can see what life was like in the region during different periods. The exhibition is spread across several rooms with the following themes: food and drink, building and living, clothing and traditional costumes, eve-ryday items, jewellery, and human life. Attractive exhibits, models, installations, a map of Liechtenstein showing where artefacts were found, peep-holes and an exca-vation site highlight the connections between these diverse themes.
