Where: Via Emilia, 87 - 40011 Anzola dell'Emilia (BO)
Inaugurated in 2010, this museum takes in and displays the materials found in the neaby Terramara during the extensive research conducted in the territory since the 80s. venue of the Museo Archeologico Ambientale
The archaeological and environmental surveys have enabled us to reconstruct the events and characteristics of a core settlement: a community dating back to 3,300 years ago, very well organized, open to trade and commerce
This community had reached a degree of prosperity thanks to the fertile lands and to a new form of social and economic organization, that is a peculiarity of these populations.
The Emilian area was one of the most densely populated in Europe between the 16th and 12th centuries BC (Middle and Late Bronze Age). The settlement was just the so-called typical "terramara" ("marl"): a square village, surrounded by a moat. These settlements existed in large numbers (over 250 sites) in the central Po valley. The marl in Anzola dell'Emilia falls fully into this category.
The museum has two exhibition halls: one displays the findings in the territory of Anzola while the other one shows the parallels between this settlement and those of the Po Valley and the Near East.
A classroom is set up with the reconstruction of a Bronze Age hut.
The museum is located in a building which used to be a former police station and is one of the four venues of the Archaelogical environmental museum, whose main site is located in San Giovanni in Persiceto.
