Discovering Perigord prehistory

Façonnage : Broché | Auteur(s) : Brigitte Et Gilles Delluc (Ang.)

This book describes the most significant and unusual aspects of prehistoric times in Périgord. Man has been living here for 500,000 years. Of course, the appearance of the earliest humans in Africa is five times older but it was in Périgord that Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon Man developed in the most spectacular way. It was also in Périgord that the first archaeological digs were carried out. For the past two centuries, the research has continued and there have been a number of exceptional discoveries, especially in the mysterious caves. With hundreds of settlement sites, more than fifty decorated caves ans rock-shelters and dozens of dolmens, the region is now internationally famous. In fact, Unesco has included the caves in the Vézère Valley in its World Heritage list
