Reveal the artifacts of a Neolithic village to understand an archaeological excavation


What we know about prehistory, we owe in part to the work of archaeologists. These are researchers who trace the evolution of man and his environment through excavations.

These excavations bring to light the traces left by men and animals of a given era.

During a 45-minute activity, children find the remains of a reconstructed Neolithic village.

From these discoveries, the animator explains the way of life of our ancestors 6000 years ago.

Tip: Remember to come early to fully enjoy your day between visiting the Caves and Prehistoric Workshops
