The Laugerie-Basse rock shelters

Date: Sunday 22 jul 2018 - Monday 31 Dec 2018

A prehistoric archaeological site on the UNESCO World Heritage list

A prehistoric archaeological site on the UNESCO World Heritage list

Just a short distance from the Grand Roc cave, in Les Eyzies de Tayac, the Laugerie Basse rock shelters
This prehistoric site dating from 15,000 BC to 10,000 BC, has served as a reference for pre-historians the world over. The many archaeological vestiges discovered here bear witness to unparalleled cultural and artistic activity in the region, and in Europe. The exceptional variety of the many decorated objects perfectly illustrates the quality of the drawings of prehistoric “modern” humans.

The family visit allowing you to discover all the richness of this site begins with a 3D video projection describing its main features (geology, archaeology, lifestyles and symbolic expression): an opportunity to get a closer view from every angle of the objects that make Laugerie Basse famous.
Then using a tablet (at extra charge), young and old are invited to carry out an amusing virtual archaeological dig to discover this site in enhanced reality just as it was thousands of years ago, with videos and audio comments.

Outdoor visit - no time limit
Unaccompanied tour of the Laugerie Basse shelters.
Optional rental of digital tablets at the welcome desk
