Prehistoric shelters at Laugerie Basse
In Les Eyzies, near the Grand Roc cave, in the limestone cliffs overlooking the Vézère, the Laugerie Basse prehistoric shelter bears witness to multiple and successive human occupations from the end of the Magdalenian period (Cro-Magnon Man 15,000 years ago) to the Middle Ages. This site is exceptional for the quantity, diversity and often the quality of the 600 or so works of art that have been discovered.
On the Laugerie-Basse site, you can visit the Marseilles shelter (the other part of the site is still built and inhabited today) and discover why and how man has returned to the site on numerous occasions. A film explains the formation of this type of shelter, and a room displays copies of some of the finest artefacts: an engraved bone disc, a harpoon, a horse's head statuette and the female figurine known as the "Whore Venus".
