Exhibition ‘Montmeló, camins i anys’. In the foreground, the Roman section

This Section exhibits the materials unearthed in the excavations carried out between 1958 and the 1990s in the Roman villa of Can Massot. There are two ‘Laietana 1’-type amphorae which still bear the inscription of who might have been the producer of the wine they contained (Sextus Statius). There is also material from other Roman sites around Montmeló, such as the necropolis on Carrer de Colom.
