The Prehistoric, Classical and Medieval Archeology Collections, which are temporarily being stored in the Laboratories of Siena University's Archaeological Sciences and Cultural Heritage Department, are part of the university's museum complex (SIMUS) and are made up of artifacts found during on-site research activities. These are accompanied by replicas, educational collections and information panels.
This patrimony includes anthropological finds such as stone artifacts, ceramics, coins, metals and glassware, along with fossils, bones and other discoveries pertaining to animal and plantlife. The collections date from various ages and civilizations, from human prehistory to the Renaissance. Most of them were found in Tuscany, which is where the university's archaeologists are most active.
