The earliest Stone Age exhibits – flint artefacts, cores and blades – are attributed to the late Palaeolithic period and are dated by the 11th–9th millennium B.C. The basis of the collection of the Mesolithic period consists of flint, bone and antler artefacts. The majority of finds come from the excavated Stone Age campsites in Lithuania. Probably the most famous find is the Mesolithic grave of the Duonkalnis pagan priest from the environs of Lake Biržulis.
