Sauveterre-la-Lémance, vers le hameau de la Ville

WelcomeSauveterre-la-Lémance, vers le hameau de la Ville

This peaceful walk is full of surprises: beautiful houses with character, views of the wooded hills and the hamlet of La Ville, surrounded by its castle and its chapel, which is reached by a path lined with boxwood. Sauveterre is a region rich in prehistoric habitats that Laurent Coulonges, archaeologist, explores in the 1920s. He discovered on the site of Martinet a new prehistoric culture known throughout the world to which he gave the name of Sauveterrian (-8000 to -7000 years). The museum of Sauveterre-la-Lémance presents the result of its excavations and recalls the sedentarization of the hunter-gatherers of the Prehistory. We find the evolution of hunting techniques, the appearance of the bow and arrow. The museum introduces young and old to the life of our ancestors, with workshops on hunting, cooking, etc. - Contact: 05 53 40 73 03.
