Castel-Merle prehistoric site
Between Montignac-Lascaux and Les Eyzies on the left bank of the Vézère, the prehistoric site of Castel-Merle comprises ten remarkable rock shelters, occupied by Neanderthal man 85,000 years ago and then by Cro-Magnon man 35,000 years ago. Excavations have revealed thousands of items of ivory ornaments, shells and pierced teeth, painted or engraved blocks, ...
In 2012, American researchers announced that they had precisely dated an engraved block from the Castel-Merle site: at 37,000 years BC, it is one of the oldest forms of cave art in Europe, if not the world. After visiting the shelters, step back in time and become the hero of Castel-Merle: learn how to light a fire and carve flint, try your hand at flintknapping, jewellery-making or assegai-making.
