Department of Archaeology


The archaeological collections document all aspects of human life in Bosnia and Herzegovina from the Old Stone Age to the late Middle Ages. The artifacts of the collections have mainly been collected during field research, though some have been acquired by exchange, gift or purchase.

In addition to their museological activity, the department's experts are also involved in scientific research work. Results of the research are analyzed and published in the journal of the National Museum, "Glasnik Zemaljskog muzeja," Vol. Archaeology.
