Circuit Préhistoire - SauveTerre

WelcomeCircuit Préhistoire - SauveTerre

Laurent Coulonges, a native of Fumel, has devoted part of his life to archaeological research in the valley of the Lémance. In the 1920s, he discovered a new prehistoric culture on the Martinet site, to which he gave the name "Sauveterrien", in reference to Sauveterre-la-Lémance. Eighty-five hundred years ago, the last hunter-fishermen of the Lémance valley started a real revolution; they became farmers and breeders and exchanged their camps for villages. New techniques were developed, tools were adapted and the use of bows and arrows became widespread. The Laurent Coulonges museum presents in an educational way the collections from the deposits discovered in the commune.
