Archaelogy

Podere Il Martellino - agriturismo : Follonica, Maremma Toscana - Etruscans [image by Frank Axelsson]The Etruscan relics found in the area around Follonica, mainly iron and steel relics, are rare examples of real life of this ancient people and they are exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Follonica together with some very well preserved furnaces.

The Museum is part of the Etruscans Park, an archaeological park which collects 11 sites throughout the area of the province of Grosseto, including the important archaeological site of Roselle, linked in a network to provide more information and more accessibility.

A little further north there are the Archaeological Park of Baratti-Populonia and the Archeo-mining Park of San Silvestro in Venturina, an open-air museum where, thanks to organized trails, you may follow the steps of metalworking from the Etruscans to Medioevo.
