Below the Surface - Archaeological finds in Amsterdam

The River Amstel runs through Amsterdam. Construction on the North / South metro line  between 2003 and 2012 allowed for a systematic examination of the riverbed. The excavations in the Amstel yielded 700,000 objects, some broken, some whole, all of them rare sources of urban history.

You can take a virtual tour of the archaeological finds or create your own display with them.
