National Museum of the Paleolithic

In the city of Isernia stands the National Museum of the Paleolithic, an innovative museum set up on the very site of the discovery of the site of "Isernia La Pineta", a prehistoric site of the lower Paleolithic that, thanks to an archaeological surface of about 300 square meters and thousands of archaeological finds, has allowed us to reconstruct a small piece of our long evolutionary history.
Discovered at the end of the 1970s, scientific research activity has allowed the discovery of a large and articulated deposit in which different archaeological levels and three archaeosurfaces have been recognized. The study of sediments, the remains of pollens, the thousands of faunal finds and the flint and limestone tools produced and used by man, have provided fundamental indications for the understanding of the environments, ways of life and strategies adopted by the groups of Homo heidelbergensis lived in Isernia about 600,000 years ago.
Remains of bison, rhinoceros, elephants, bears and megaceri associated with flint and limestone instruments have been abandoned by the human groups that frequented the area of Isernia, and that today constitute the beating heart of the Museum; a museum of around 4,000 square meters divided into three large pavilions, a large green area and annexed structures used for educational and informational activities.
