John Lubbock’s Collection: The Swiss Lake Villages

John Lubbock shared a love for prehistoric archaeology with many colleagues across Europe, in the days before photography and the internet. Visiting archaeological sites discovered, talking with those excavating them, and collecting samples of finds, was an important way of sharing information and ideas.

John was also a natural scientist and businessman, who took an interest in the construction of the Jungfraujoch Railway carved through the Eiger mountainside in the late C19th. A stunning journey to the top of the Jungfrau still drawing crowds today!
