The exposition View into prehistoric times of Chomutov region presents the prehistoric development in Chomutov region from the Neolithic period to Roman times (the 6th millennium BC - 400 AD). This exposition is based on the results of extensive archaeological research of sites the importance of which goes beyond the borders of the region.

The neolithic and eneolithic periods are represented by the findings from Vikletice where the archaeological research was carried out in the years between 1961 and 1967 during the construction Nechranice dam and one of the largest cemeteries of the eneolithic culture with the corded ceramics in the Europe was discovered. Over 160 graves which were explored provide a rich material of findings. The exposition shows the wide repertoire of the material culture of these early prehistoric periods and one reconstructed grave with the corded ceramics is contained in the exposition.

The Bronze Age is the time of depots i.e. the collective findings of pottery and bronze tools, weapons or ornaments are laid in the ground as votive gifts – oblations or as the storages. The exposition shows the ceramic depots uncovered thanks to a happy incident in Droužkovice (total of 53-55 stored pots and 30 plates were fully or partially reconstructed) and in Čachovice (with more than 30 cups). Between the years 1974 and 1980 to 1981 in Poláky there was uncovered one of the largest burial grounds of the bylans culture (older Iron Age). 54 graves of different structures were explored incl. the demonstration of the cairn overlay of the grave and wooden chamber. The rich graves contained the extensive ceramic equipment and metal parts of horse harness or wooden funeral cars. Also a significant bylans settlements was documented in Vikletice..

The exposition contains the reconstructed (only in the diminished version) largest grave from Poláky and the largest storage jar from Vikletice which is an over 1 m high ceramic container.

The younger Iron Age is represented by the findings from the farmstead in Droužkovice including a rare bronze sculpture and decorations and containers from other finding places. In 1967 in the cadastral area of municipalities of Dolany and Lomazice there was discovered the necropolis with 30 cremating graves of later Roman period. The exposition shows the findings that were added to the graves (ornaments, weapons, tools) and a female dummy represents the Germanic clothing tied up by means of bronze buckles with eyelets.

Individual prehistoric times are accompanied by maps on which the significant finding places are marked.

The catalogue of the exposition was published.

The exposition can be browsed with a guide or without a guide. We also offer an expert commentary adapted to the requirements of visitors (especially suitable for schools, their seminars, etc. always by prior arrangement).
