Founded in 1852, the Central Romano-Germanic Museum in Mainz showcases exhibits from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages in their historical context.
The provenance of the exhibits ranges from the Near East to Spain and from North Africa to Scandinavia. A highlight from Roman times is the Mainz Globe, originally used to crown the gnomon, or hand, of a sundial. In 1981 a total of five ships dating from the third and fourth centuries were salvaged from the ancient harbour basin of Mainz and are now on display in the Museum of Ancient Shipbuilding.
