Zagreb, Croatia -- By coincidence, the Poor Clares built over a site inhabited since the early Iron Age. So when the museum was established, the first thing to do was get archaeologists to excavate the basement! They found many layers of civilization starting with the Halstatt culture around the 8th century BCE. (Halstatt was a Celtic tribal culture common in central Europe.) This site appeared to have been abandoned when the Romans left until the early middle ages around the 7th century CE.
