The Mesolithic and Neolithic collections at the National Museums & Galleries of Wales provide much of the basis for our understanding of life in Wales from the end of the Ice Age to the beginning of metalworking. During these seven millennia, the foundations of our modern lives were laid as hunter-gatherers began the taming of the landscape, agriculture was adopted and long-distance exchange networks were established.
