Pretty nice museum. Not a whole lot of exhibitions. Made world news when falsified item was on display claiming that there was a strong arab-viking connection. The falsification is extremely poorly made and has nothing with archeology to do but only political correctness. Also the pictures in the news completely left out the swastiks that was on the original unfasified item. Hows that for cultural relativism for you?

Nice museum but good exhibitions, everything from the old Enköping to the ancient times with mixed exhibitions coming and going.

Mycket sevärt museum som visar utställningar från fynd i närområdet på ett pedagogiskt bra sätt och en liten utställning om industristaden Enköping. Det jag saknar för 5 stjänor är engelsk text till utställningarna. Hur skall man få turister till museum om de inte kan läsa?

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
