Castro de Neixón

Sometimes history is told through small things

Due to the ruins found in this place we know that its inhabitants were mainly shepherds and peasants. But, as true Galicians, they could not miss out on the sea delights: mussels, oysters and clams were their favourite seafood. They had day to day objects such as ceramic pots, pins and bronze necklaces – and even coloured glass stones where they kept aromatic oils! In those days these were commonplace objects, nowadays they are  exceptional museum pieces that help us to understand history.
