The Museum of Mediterranean Archaeology contains a vast collection of important artefacts from ancient Mediterrenean civilisations. It has the second largest collection of Egyptian artefacts in France, after the Louvre, a rich collection from the Middle East with ceramics and early tablets from 4th century Mesopotamia and discoveries of bronze and ceramic objects from ancient Greece and ancient Rome. There is also an interseting collection of Celto-Ligurian objects found within 30km radius of Marseille itself that illustrates the evolution of village communities in the area since the 5th century BC.
