Focusing on the newest interdisciplinary research, the exhibition, which was created with expertise and objects from the Natural History Museum in Vienna in Austria, shows the town of Hallstatt located in the Austrian Alps as a "cradle of Europe's industrialisation", with first traces of salt mining during the Neolithic era, more than 7000 years ago!
Archaeological objects found in the Bronze Age mines of Hallstatt indicate a previously unknown level of perfection, efficiency, and logistics from the epoch 4000 years ago. The salt in the prehistoric mines of Hallstatt preserve all organic objects: a situation that is unique in the world!
