The National Museum of Finland

Art, Helsinki

THIS ARTICLE HAS BEEN UP-DATED WITH SOME SUGGESTIONS FROM THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF FINLAND

This heavy-walled, castle-looking building includes a collection of Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages’  fragments and objects that have helped archaeologists and anthropologists shape the origins of Finnish people and their culture.

Comb Ware, which is a term that refers to comb-resembling marks on the walls of ceramic vessels that date back to 4000-2000 BC produced during the Stone Age, were later partially replaced by metal objects during Iron Age.

Of course the Roman and Middle Ages, Renaissance and Illumination also took place in Finland like in the rest of Europe. Finland was an integral part of the Kingdom of Sweden until 1809, and part of the Russian Empire until 1917 when it became the independent Republic of Finland.
