National Museum of Archaeology. National Domain of Saint-Germain-en-Laye – MAN

The Musée d’Archéologie nationale (MAN) is the only museum in France dedicated entirely to archaeology with collections covering the Paleolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages, Roman Gaul and the early Middle Ages, as well as having a department devoted to comparative archaeology.

The MAN is dedicated to valorizing its collections and developing scientific projects based on them. The partnership between the Nanterre Archaeology and Ethnology School / Maison d’Archéologie et d’Ethnologie de Nanterre (MAE, UMR ArScAn, ArchAm and Trajectoires) and the MAN enables master’s and doctoral students to study this rich archaeological collection while encouraging research projects and scientific events or valorizing activities.

The MAN has created several scientific events based on the subjects dealt with by the EUR, most especially the colloquium entitled “Archaeology in the museum and national identities in Europe” (2017) or the exhibit “The Origins of Greece: between dream and archaeology” (2014).
