We are all children in the face of Prehistory! 400,000 years of human presence can be seen at thirty or so sites, as varied as they are geographically close. The first people left Aquitaine wonderful testimonies of their presence, making our region one of the richest in France in this field. Lascaux, the Cro-Magnon rock shelter, or that of Moustier from which the bones of Neanderthals were extracted, it’s all here!
