Castro dei Volsci. Archaeological Museum

The Archaeological Museum is in a wing of the Madonna del Piano media school and includes 8 sections that collect all the material excavated in Castro dei Volsci territory since prehistoric times.

The museum has its own 'mascot', Artemisio's child represented in a marble slab belonging to a sarcophagus of the 3rd century AD.

The slab was only found in 1998 during the work on the church because it had been overturned and used as a doorstep.
