Children are smaller than adults, but not so small as not to be seen! However, particularly in pre- and proto-history, traces of children are scarcely to be found. Only the modern techniques for analysis, of the last couple of decades reveal children’s finger- and handprints from the later Stone Age (approx. 40,000 – 12,000 years ago) in caves or on small clay figures. But can these really be the work of children?


The temporary exhibition illuminates the world of children and their families in the last part of the Old Stone Age, in an informative manner. Numerous exhibits invite particularly (but not only!) the younger visitors to enjoy a real hands-on exhibition.

An exhibition by the Archaeological Museum Frankfurt in collaboration with the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg
