A wide range of materials from museums and sites, such as mosaics, glass, stone, stuccowork, bone, ivory, wood and leather are treated in the archaeological artefacts section. However, the most common works of art are made of metal (buckles, brooches, pendants, daggers, coins and spearheads) and ceramics (amphoras, plates, bowls, fretwork, basins, etc.). Such pieces are usually in poor condition given that they are found in excavation sites.
This is especially true in the case of ceramics, which are often fragmented and require cleaning treatment as well as reconstruction and strengthening before loss compensation can be performed. On some occasions, and in the case of specific archaeological collections, this section works in close collaboration with the Archaeology and Palaeontology Section of the Government of Catalonia.
