An archaeological treasure trove on the site of a planned metro station in central Algiers is set to become a museum, opening a window on 2,000 years of history.The 3,000-square-meter site was deemed so important that the municipality adapted its plans for the metro station, a move Stiti said was a first in Algeria.The site will now become a museum incorporated into the station, which, in turn, will take up less than half its planned 8,000 square meters.The museum will open shortly afterward, covering 1,200 square meters and set up chronologically.Aicha, 70, who lives near the site, said she is looking forward to seeing the museum open.
