The Nagase Takahama artifacts are a large complex of artifacts from the Yayoi period (300BC to 300AD), discovered during excavation works for the National Highway and a sewerage treatment plant. Among a number of discoveries, the most significant was a clump of haniwa, which are clay figures placed in burial mounds to protect the dead. The Takahama haniwa are designated cultural artifacts, and are on permanent display at the Hawai Museum of History and Folklore.

長瀬高浜遺跡は、弥生時代から中世にかけての巨大複合遺跡で、下水道の終末処理場と国道建設に伴って発見されました。さまざまな発見がありましたが、中でも注目は一括して出土した埴輪です。高浜遺跡の埴輪は、国の重要文化財に指定されており、羽合歴史民俗資料館に常設展示されています。
